Moldova reports record grain harvest


Moldova's grain harvest exceeded 1m tonnes in 2013, a record for the last 10 years.

"Of the total grain harvest, 70 kmt will be used as seeds, 340 kmt to ensure the country's food security, and 400 kmt to feed the livestock," Agriculture Minister Vasile Bumacov said.

Bumacov also said Moldova plans to export a total of 160 kmt of grain, adding that the authorities will do their best to avoid the monopolization of the export market.
