After a record-breaking harvest in MY 2020/21, Post anticipates a return to more average production levels for all grain varieties. Cold spring temperatures have slowed winter plant development. In MY 2020/21, Lithuania became one of the EU’s top soft wheat exporters. During first nine months of MY 2020/21, wheat exports reached 3.5 MMT, 19 percent above the previous year. High international grain prices motivated Lithuanian farmers to increase area of wheat plantings in MY 2021/22.
