Morocco Expects Better Crop Year in 2018

The outlook for Morocco’s crop year in 2018 is positive thanks to abundant rainfall, the agriculture ministry said in a statement.

Cumulative rainfall reached 281 mm this year boding well for the yield, the statement said, adding that overall dam filling rate hit 59%.

Last year, Morocco produced 96 million quintals of cereals, including 49 million quintals (51%) of wheat, 25 million quintals of barley and 22 million quintals of hard wheat.

Agriculture accounts for more than 15% of the Moroccan economy and the high harvest is expected to boost growth.
