EU-28: Crop Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

At nearly 313.5 MMT, the total MY2019/20 EU28 grain crop is around 2 MMT higher than the previous forecast, with higher wheat, corn and barley production partially offset by a lower mixed grain production. Higher than previously forecast food, seed and industrial use is largely offset by a reduction in forecast feed use, but it is still significantly up year-on-year. While the overall situation means a relatively buoyant outlook for EU28 grain supplies in the coming months, planting conditions for the MY2020/21 are currently somewhat mixed.
