DBV sees German wheat harvest only at 18.6 million tons

The German grain harvest is falling dramatically this year. The German Farmers Association (DBV) estimates the harvest after a long dry spell and various heat waves only at 35.6 million tons (previous year: 45.5 million tons).
According to the experts, the wheat harvest in Germany will only be 18.6 million tons (previous year: 24.1 million tons), according to the latest estimate from today.
The German crop dried up under the highest temperatures since 1881 and prolonged drought. Wheat prices in the European Union rose to its highest level in five years in August, as supply shortages could occur.
The association demands from the federal government 1 billion euros to compensate for the huge losses.
