Argentina’s 2010/2011 grains and oilseeds harvest is estimated to have reached 100.46 mm tons, which is above last year’s according to the latest technical report from the Ministry of Agriculture.
Good yields for most crops have played a crucial role in the good results, says the report.

The over 100 mm tons include 44.46 mm tons of grains; 53.83 mm tons of oil seeds and 2.35 mm tons of other crops. The most extraordinary performance was achieved with wheat which helped by favourable humidity and dry weather at harvesting time totalled 14.7 mm tons, 8 mm tons over the previous harvest.
With oilseeds, sunflower harvesting has begun and yields are also very promising, while soybeans are expected to reach over 50 mm tons, less than originally estimated but nevertheless significant.

The barley crop was up from 1.3 mm tons to 2.9 mm; sorghum 4 mm tons and the estimate for sunflower is 3.7 mm tons.
The total adds up to over 100 mm tons which is a milestone, according to Agriculture Secretary Lorenzo Basso who stamped his signature in the release.
