10.8% of grains remain to be harvested in Belarus, informed the Head of main department of Ministry of Agriculture and Food, Gregory Romanyuk. According to him harvesting is delayed because of cloudbursts. Grain quality has become worse - it gets dark and grows out in standing. Even old-timers don't remember such difficult harvesting. According to the preliminary estimations of Ministry specialists due to such unfavourable weather conditions Belarus can lose about 1 mln tonnes of grain. As of September, 6, gross grain output totaled 5.639 mln tonnes, down 719.000 tonnes from the previous year. The average yield of grains is 2.91 tonnes per hectare.
