Netherlands: The Diverse Effects of the Drought

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

This report outlines the effects of the recent drought on agricultural production in the Netherlands. Dairy farmers will face a loss due to higher feed costs, while the producers of arable crops, vegetables and fruits are expected to benefit from higher prices. The Dutch Government allowed flexibilities related to manure application and sowing of grass and catch crops to help compensate for financial loses. Due to the limited domestic feed supply, more hay, corn and soybeans are forecast to be imported.
