EU’s cereal, oilseed crop estimate for 2022 down
MARS, the European Union’s crop monitoring service, has lowered its 2022 yield forecasts for most cereal and oilseed crops as dry conditions persist in much of Europe. For soft wheat, the EU’s main cereal crop, MARS cut its projection of this year’s yield to 5.76 tonnes per hectare (t/ha) from the 5.89 t/ha forecast last month. That was 4.7 per cent below the 2021 level and now 1.3 per cent below the average of the past five years, it said in a monthly report. MARS made its sharpest yield revision to durum at 2.3 per cent, said a report.
