Virgina's 2010 wheat crop is expected to decline by 9 percent from last year's production.
The National Agriculture Statistics Services predicts wheat production in Virginia to total 11 million bushels. The state produced 12.2 million bushels in 2009.
The agency's initial season forecast says 175,000 acres of wheat, with an average yield of 63 bushels per acre, are expected to be harvested this year.
The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says the majority of the state's wheat crop was in fair to condition as of early May.
