European Union: good harvest for 2013 and good sowings for winter

Thursday 9 January 2014 (4 years 1 months 16 days ago)

Copa-Cogeca released final EU-27 cereals estimates for the 2013/14 marketing year, confirming a good 2013 grain harvest and quality, up 4.5% on last years levels.

The issue was discussed in Copa-Cogeca cereals working party. The figures show that EU-27 grain production is up 4.6% this year on last years levels and the quality is good. In particular, EU-27 soft wheat production is estimated to climb by 6.9% to 135.8 million tonnes this year, barley production by 6% and maize production by 0.4%.

Sowings for the winter period also seem to be good so far but they are still under pressure from winter kill and it is too early to tell how it will pan out. Only in March will farmers be in a position to assess better the acreage for production.

In the advisory group meeting with the EU Commission, the issue of diabrotica was also discussed and Copa-Cogeca reiterated its call to lift current restrictions on transporting corn in Europe.
