EU corn is suffering from drought and heat

The long drought and high temperatures in parts of the European Union have added to the maize crops entering the crucial pollination stage. The proportion of stocks measured by July 6 with 'good' to 'excellent', by 10 points to 71% fell in France. 15% of stocks are in the pollination phase, so the French analyst FranceAgriMer. "Corn is pretty much anywhere in France under stress, where water-not" Jean Sabastien Jacquet, analyst at FranceAgriMer said. The temperatures have moved away from the record levels of last week by around 40 ° Celsius, but most of the growing areas bleaches dry. Significant precipitation is expected in the coming days. Only about half of French maize stocks to water, significantly less than in Spain and Italy. Restrictions on water consumption in some local areas can still reduce the proportion. In Hungary, 10-20% of dry corn stocks are affected, although the rainfall and the decline of temperatures are still can compensate for part of the damage. Hungarian farmers have planted corn on 1.2 million hectares. Thus, the Hungarian corn acreage is 2015 on the level of the previous year. Hungary expects just an average maize harvest of 6-7 million tons after the record harvest (9.2 million tons) last year.
