Record Kazakhstan crop leads world wheat production

Cattle Network (No. 15, 2011) | World wheat production is projected up 2.1 million tons this month to a near-record 683.3 million, just 1 million tons lower than the all-time high in the 2009/10 marketing year. While world harvested area is left almost unchanged, the already record-high world average wheat yield inched up 0.01 tons per hectare due to increased yields in Kazakhstan and EU-27.
