April 26 (Reuters) - Barrick Gold Corp, the world's largest gold producer, reported a quarterly loss, compared with a year-earlier profit, as asset sales weighed on production and realized prices fell.

The company reported a net loss of $83 million, or 7 cents per share, in the quarter ended March 31, compared with a profit $57 million, or 5 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue fell about 14 percent to $1.93 billion.
