Agricultural Management Tour to Polish Grain Production

  • Destination: Poland
  • Duration: 4 days

Poland is one of Europe’s biggest grain producers, with a farm sector that has changed dramatically since it joined the European Union (E.U.) more than 10 years ago. Polish agriculture is now covered by Europe’s Common Agricultural Policy and Poland’s farming has restructured. It is a significant exporter of grains and processed products, while demand for biodiesel has encouraged production of oilseed rape.

According to the International Grains Council’s Grain Market Report, Poland’s total grains production in 2014-15 will be 30.4 million tonnes, up from 28.2 million in the previous year. Wheat production is put at 11.1 million tonnes, up from 9.6 million the year before. The barley crop is put at 3.3 million tonnes, up from 3 million. Oat production is put at 700,000 tonnes, up from 600,000. Poland is also predicted to produce 3.2 million tonnes of rye, just down on the previous year’s 3.3 million.

Polish rapeseed production in 2014-15 is put at 3 million tonnes, up from 2.8 in 2013-14.

According to the European Flour Millers’ Association, there were 435 flour mills in Poland in 2013 with a capacity of 7 million tonnes. The association breaks the total down into 40 mills with a capacity of less than 30 tonnes a day, 180 mills with a capacity of between 20 and 100 tonnes a day, and 215 mills with a capacity of over 100 tonnes a day.

Capacity usage in the industry is put at 65% and the supply of cereals to the flour milling industry is put at 4.2 million tonnes of wheat flour and 850,000 tonnes of rye flour.
