Morocco’s cereals output to drop to 6.1 mln tonnes in 2019

RABAT, April 26 (Reuters) - Morocco’s cereals production is expected to be 6.1 million tonnes in 2019, down 40.7 percent from last year, due to a lack of rainfall, the agriculture ministry said.

This year’s harvest includes 3.5 million tonnes of soft wheat, 1.35 million tonnes of hard wheat and 1.25 million tonnes of barley, the ministry said in a statement.

Rainfall dropped 23 percent from the previous season. (Reporting by Ahmed Eljechtimi; editing by David Evans)
