EU: harvest problems despite regional excellent weather conditions for high grain yields

MARS predicts higher average income in the EU-28 the previous year

The agro-meteorological Institute of the European Union (MARS) predicts the EU cereal yields without corn up 6.1% compared to the already good year 2013 in the latest monthly report. In the case of corn , the Flächenerträge by 11% over the 5-year average should fail.

Large areas received above-average rainfallfrom France over parts of North and South Germany to the South East of the EU. Apart from the spatially limited damage, the rainfall mainly cheap impacted for the formation of a high yield.

Only average results are achieved in France and the Benelux countries . There, the rainfall had a rather negative effect on the harvest in terms of quantity and quality.

Also only average yield forecasts are issued for the Czech Republic, the Baltic States and Finland .

Considerable loss of earnings had to be accepted due to the drought in Spain, Italy, Slovakia and some regions along the Adriatic coast.

In the vast majority of the EU Member States and the larger part of the grain surface, above-average yields are stated.  This includes Germany, as well as the most space in the new EU Member States.

Above-average temperatures were observed outside the EU in Ukraine and Turkey .

The yield findings based on climate data in individual regions, whose values are using income from previous years in connection. From a growing ever more precise data structure has evolved, which is capable of sufficiently precise to make the energy yield calculations even on small spatial basis.  The EU Commission based this data material for its harvest forecasts.
