Post anticipates a return to more average production levels for all grain varieties in MY 2021/22. Cold spring temperatures slowed both winter and spring plant development. In MY 2020/21, for the second consecutive year, Estonian farmers capitalized on higher international soft wheat prices. During first nine months of MY 2020/21, wheat exports reached 561,000 metric tons (MT), only 11.5 percent below the previous year’s record. High global grain prices motivated Lithuanian farmers to increase the wheat area in MY 2021/22.
