Romania Becomes Major Grain Producer, Exporter in the EU
USAgNet - 05/21/2019

Romania consolidates its position as a major producer and exporter of cereals in the European Union as it registered good crops during the last couple of years.

Last year, Romania was the third producer of cereals in the EU, after France and Germany, with 31.2 million of tonnes.

The eastern European country is now the biggest producer of corn and sunflower seeds within the EU, with total output of almost 19 million tonnes of corn and 3.35 million tonnes of sunflower seeds, according to Agerpres.

Due to larger output, Romania’s export of cereals rose last year by 1 million tonnes up to 12 million tonnes, a record level, and the value of cereal exports was EUR 2.2 billion.

In 2018, Romania imported food and live animals of EUR 6.07 billion, up 2 percent against 2017, while exports rose by 3.6 percent up to EUR 4.2 billion, according to fresh Eurostat data.
