France: corn harvest is done to 23% (update and correction!)

French farmers have harvested by 10 October 23% of maize stocks versus 10% in the previous week and 33% at the same time last year. The condition of the corn stocks is stable. 53% of the holdings were unchanged versus the previous week "good to excellent", the top rating.
Harvest estimates expect a decline in the French corn crop to the lowest level for 13 years. The reason is the drought in the summer.
I slowed the pace of harvesting activities. Want to let farmers as long as possible dry the stocks on the field, to reduce subsequent drying costs already weak income and low prices.
Also winter grain sowing progress is behind the pace of last year. FranceAgriMer estimates that 23% (not 29%) of planned winter wheat sowing areas in France by October 10 are ordered. A week ago the progress amounted to 6%, last year at the same time however at 34%. 3% of the seed is already versus 10% in the last year at the same time.
Winter barley sowing is done on 39% of planned versus 10% in the past week and 54% last year at the same time. 4% of stocks are accrued versus 16% in the past year at the same time.
After the recent drought, which has had a negative effect on the stocks of corn and impedes also the rapeseed, quiet doubts whether France farmers hold after bad wheat harvest this summer on the planned space on wheat sowing. FranceAgriMer but considers it likely. Rainfall predicted this week, could improve the conditions of the seed.
