I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Agriculture in Serbia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Over 60% of Serbia is arable land
Over 60% of Serbia is arable land

Agriculture in Serbia is still an important section of Serbian economy with an annual potential of EUR 12 billion in exports.[1] The total area of agricultural land exceeds 6.12 million hectares.[2][3] Agricultural production is most prominent in Northern Serbia on the fertile Pannonian Plain, and the southern lowlands adjacent to the Sava, Danube and Great Morava rivers. There has been in a sharp decline in agricultural activity since 1948, when almost three-quarters of the population engaged in farming, to the present one-quarter.[4]

Serbia produces various agricultural products, mostly grains, fruits and vegetables which constitute a significant part of its GDP and exports. Serbia is number two producer of raspberries (84,299 tons, second to Russia) and plums (146,776 tons, second to China) in the world, it is also significant producer of maize (6,158,120 tons, ranked 32nd in the world) and wheat (2,095,400 tons, ranked 35th in the world). The production of sugar beet (2,299,770 tons) and sunflower seeds (454,282 tons) meets domestic demand for sugar and vegetable oil and permits export of some 180,000 tons of sugar to the European Union.[5]
