BELGRADE (Serbia), July 2 (SeeNews) - Serbia's wheat harvest, which started last week, is expected to yield a crop of 2.4 million t this year, local media reported on Thursday, quoting the director of local grain industry association Zita Srbije.

Serbia needs 1.5 million tonnes of wheat for its own needs while the remainder will be exported.
