United Kingdom: wheat crop lower than expected

The British Ministry of agriculture has reduced its forecast of this year's wheat harvest in the United Kingdom by 14.47 million tonnes to EUR14.38 million tons. Wheat production dropped it to last year, when 16,44 million tons of wheat were harvested by 12.5%. The decrease is explained by lower income of 7.9 tons per hectare (- 12.1%). Thus, the yields are within of the long-term average, but well below the 25-year high of 9.0 tons per hectare in 2015.
The British rapeseed crop is estimated at 1.78 million tons. This is a decrease of 30.2% to the net income from the year 2015, as 2.54 million tons of rape seed were harvested. Reasons for this are lower income (- 21.4%) and a smaller acreage (- 11.2%).
