European Commission forecasts average crop production for 2010 in the EU despite extreme weather

Total cereal production in 2010 should be close to the average from the last five years. While the yield per hectare will be 5% above average, overall cultivated areas have decreased.

Total cereal production in 2010 should be close to the average from the last five years. While the yield per hectare will be 5% above average, overall cultivated areas have decreased.

This agricultural year has been marked by unusual scattered weather events ranging from severe rain shortage to floods. However, the impact of poor weather on crops in some areas of the EU has been offset in other areas.

Winter barley has been less affected than soft wheat by the dry and hot conditions. In the two main producing countries France and Germany, yields are forecast to be at average level, but 4 % below last year's level. Spain, which accounts for one quarter of spring barley production, is forecast to have a yield 15 % above the five-year average.

While the EU's cereal harvest should reach average levels, the JRC crop monitoring system identifies very critical conditions (hot and dry) that will severely affect winter crop production in Russia, and in particular along the Volga River.
