Finland to produce 4 million t of grain

If the weather conditions are favourable, Finland aims to produce four million tonnes of grain this year.

Cold and dry weather hampered the early growing season, according to Agriculture Ministry.

Yields per hectare would fall well below last year's level, but some of the shortfall would be compensated by more land used for grain crops. The Finnish grain harvest was 4.1 million tonnes last year.
