Mild and wet weather revives EU winter wheat stocks

Rain in many parts of the European Union has revived the growth of winter wheat stocks in France, but the drought in Central Europe following an extreme summer drought is still hampering plant development.
French market analyst Strategy Grains estimates that winter wheat acreage in the EU (28) increased by 6% to 24.3 million hectares. A strong restriction of rapeseed acreage leaves more space for wheat.
In France, the drought had prevented many farmers from sowing their winter crops. However, mild weather with rain has improved the conditions. It is too late for rape, so more wheat is sown. The field stocks are currently receiving a stable high rating in France.
In Germany, the EU's second-largest wheat producer, winter wheat production for the 2019 harvest was expanded to 3.3 million hectares by 400,000 hectares over the previous year. Here, too, this was at the expense of the rapeseed acreage. However, in some parts of the Federal Republic it is still too dry and the risk for wintering at strongly falling temperatures is still high.If even more rapeseed surfaces have to be wrapped, there is still time for other winter seeds until Christmas.
In Poland, winter sowing is currently mostly good, but like Germany, hard frosts can cause damage because it is still too dry. Here, winter wheat cultivation was expanded by 5% to approx. 2 million hectares.
In the UK, one complains about too much rainfall and the soil structure has deteriorated, it says.
