Hectares planted to wheat have been adjusted lower by 9.6% to 546‚700 hectares in the 2012 season compared with a year earlier‚ the crop estimates committee said on Tuesday in its latest report.

The area planted to wheat stood at 604‚700 hectares in 2011.

The committee said wheat remained a non-profit crop based on the lower prices. This is the lowest area planted to wheat since the early 1930s‚ it said.
