World Grain, 04/03/2019 - Romania qualifies as one of the Black Sea origins for grain, with Russia and Ukraine, but it also has the advantage of being a member of the European Union (E.U.), with its farmers supported under the E.U.’s Common Agricultural Policy. The country’s farm minister, Petre Daea, is chairing E.U. meetings of national farm ministers during the first half of 2019 as the country holds the revolving Presidency of the Union’s Council of Ministers. That gives Daea the difficult task of steering reform proposals for the difficult task of steering reform proposals for the CAP through ministerial meetings.

Romania is becoming an increasingly important producer and exporter of grains. It serves as a conduit to the outside world for much of southeastern Europe, with grain coming by barge along the Danube.

La Roumanie vampirise le marché européen du maïs

La Roumanie vampirise le marché européen du maïs | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Le pays de Dracula est devenu, depuis peu, devant la France, le premier producteur de maïs du Vieux Continent, explique dans sa chronique hebdomadaire, Laurence Girard, journaliste au « Monde ».

La mode est à l’ail noir. Mais les agriculteurs français auraient dû en augmenter la dose cette année. Ils n’ont, en effet, pas réussi à conjurer la puissance roumaine. Le pays de Dracula vampirise le marché européen du maïs, ou en tout cas le domine. Il devrait récolter cette année entre 14,5 et 15 millions de tonnes de grain jaune, à comparer aux 11,8 millions engrangés en France. Une estimation de l’Association générale des producteurs de maïs (AGPM) alors que les derniers épis sont coupés dans le Sud-Ouest.

Depuis peu, la Roumanie décroche la couronne de premier producteur européen de maïs, détrônant le royaume de la volaille de Bresse. Pas vraiment une surprise. Les gourmands le savent, si la polenta est l’apanage du pays des Apennins, ce plat goûteux prend le nom de mamaliga dans les Carpates. Mais les investisseurs en Roumanie ne songent pas uniquement à l’appétit de leurs compatriotes. Le jackpot du grain jaune est à l’exportation.
