Cereal yield (kg per hectare)

The value for Cereal yield (kg per hectare) in Italy was 5,682 as of 2011. As the graph below shows, over the past 50 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 5,682 in 2011 and a minimum value of 2,115 in 1963.

Definition: Cereal yield, measured as kilograms per hectare of harvested land, includes wheat, rice, maize, barley, oats, rye, millet, sorghum, buckwheat, and mixed grains. Production data on cereals relate to crops harvested for dry grain only. Cereal crops harvested for hay or harvested green for food, feed, or silage and those used for grazing are excluded. The FAO allocates production data to the calendar year in which the bulk of the harvest took place. Most of a crop harvested near the end of a year will be used in the following year.
