EU winter wheat cultivation is expanded despite adverse weather

Common wheat cultivation in the European Union is likely to expand this year, even if in some regions the sowing conditions are as difficult as in the previous year due to too much rain.
However, the weather conditions in France are currently improving noticeably. The country is Europe's largest wheat producer. However, due to the spring drought, around a third less wheat was harvested there than in the previous year.
The consulting firm Strategy Grains estimates that the wheat acreage in the EU + UK will grow by 9% to 24 million hectares for the harvest in 2021. France and Great Britain are the main contributors to the expansion.
By October 12, 12% of the planned acreage in France had been planted with wheat. That was 16% less than on the same date last year. If it gets a little drier next week, the deficit should be made up again. France's wheat cultivation is expected to expand by 17% and take place on around five million hectares.
In Great Britain, around 1.8 million hectares will be planted with winter wheat (previous year: 1.415 million hectares). But there you still wait for dry weather.
The sowing conditions are much better in Germany.The soil moisture is good and it was mostly dry recently, so the starting conditions are excellent. One can still speculate about the area development. There is a tendency in this country to grow more winter wheat, more winter barley and more winter rape.
Winter wheat sowing has already been completed in Poland. There, too, a little more of the grain was grown because the prices are currently good.
