Spanish winter cereal area to inch higher

Early official estimates show Spanish small-grain cereal farmers planting a similar area to last year’s winter cereal acreage. The area is to rise by 0.6% on a like-for-like basis compared with 2011. The area for all wheat is expected to rise by 2% to just over 2 million ha. That includes the soft wheat area dipping by 1% to just under 1.6 million ha, while the durum wheat acreage is to climb by almost 15% to some 437,100 ha. The “very preliminary” figures predict a 2% dip in the oat area to 479,800 ha, and rises of 1% for rye (150,600 ha) and over 2% for triticale (102,400 ha). The figures for barley only compare six-row barley, with the area falling by 3.2%. The total barley area for last year was expected to have reached almost 2.9 million ha ( Agrow No 615, p 14).
