European Union: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   E42024-0011
In MY 2024/25, EU grain production is anticipated to exceed the previous season’s levels and amount to 274 MMT. Excessive rain currently prevails in the EU’s northwest, hampering winter grains development and impeding spring planting operations. At the same time, early spring precipitations improved soil moisture in those regions where dry conditions were initially reported. Russian and Ukrainian grains continue to pose fierce competition in third country markets, hindering EU grain exporting capabilities. However, competitively priced grains continue to go to EU grain-deficient Member States, helping to improve the livestock sector’s production margins, particularly for the poultry sector .
