Yields winter crops

Last winter season in 2015 has given very good yields in crop farming. Different crops had new record yields on national average. Wheat 3.610 kg per hectares, barley 3.828 kg per hectare and canola 1.561 kg per hectare. Also as a result of this the common rotation soy bean and wheat is no longer the most preferred combination for crop farmers in Uruguay. Planting of soy beans in summer 2015/2016 is 13% down in surface. The total of long and short cycle soy beans has resulted in planting  of 1.16 M hectares in Uruguay.
