United Kingdom EU: EU28 Crop Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The unprecedented heatwave in June across much of the European Union attracted attention to the outlook for the MY2019/20 EU28 grain crop. A second, albeit brief, heatwave in late July has again brought attention to the fore. After a benign but dry winter, rain in April and May was welcomed across the EU28 but came too late for Spain. The subsequent hot weather saw the winter barley harvest start promptly and the crop is generally reported to be of good quality and yield. However, for spring barley and wheat, the unusually early hot weather came at a crucial time for grain fill, with mixed results. The corn crop is reported to be developing well in the south east but there is more uncertainty and concern as you move north and west. All are agreed, more timely rain is still needed.
