Cherkizovo Group, one of Russia’s largest producers of meat and meat products, is forecasting a grain harvest of 250,000 tonnes bunker weight in 2014, an increase of 45 % from the previous year, as the company reported.

This year, the company increased its land bank in Moscow, Lipetsk, Orel, and Voronezh regions by 45 % to 58,000 hectares. As in previous years, most of the land will be sown with wheat, corn, sunflower, and barley.

The company achieved high yields last year that significantly exceeded the average for Russia. Wheat yield in 2013 was 5 t/ha (bunker weight) vs. an average of 2.3 t/ha for Russia; corn yield was 9 t/ha vs. 5.3 t/ha, and sunflower yield was 3.5 t/ha vs. 1.6 t/ha, the report added, with reference to data from the RF Ministry of Agriculture.

A new grain drying facility was also constructed in Voronezh region.
