Farmers focusing more on sunflower than maize
This year, we have planted sunflower on between 240.000 and 250.000 hectares of land, which is an all-time record, says Vukosav Sakovic, director of Zito Serbia. Farmers have had ideal weather conditions for sowing – warm climate and the land that was moist enough in its deeper layers. There hasn’t been too much precipitation either. However, the concern now is with the high daily temperatures and dry surface layers of the land, so the rain is very much needed to speed up the growing process.
