United Kingdom: Grain and Feed Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UK2024-0017
The UK is forecast to have one of the lowest grain crops on record in MY 2024/25 following challenging winter planting conditions, a very wet winter, and continued rains now disrupting crop management and spring plantings. Not only is this expected to significantly reduce the planted area, but also average yields. Quality remains to be determined, and the weather between now and harvest will be crucial, causing producer sentiment to be low. As a consequence of the small harvest, and despite continued, lackluster demand from the livestock sector, the UK will again be a net importer of grain, especially corn for feed.
