Romania: Dry Fall Follows Record 2018 Corn Crop

Drought conditions during late-summer and fall 2018 are negatively affecting the development of the winter crops across Romania. Winter rapeseed area planted is expected to decline by half, as many farmers are likely to switch to corn and sunflower production in marketing year (MY) 2019/20. July 2018 rains boosted the corn crop and provided Romanian growers export opportunities within the European Union (EU), particularly to northern and severely drought-affected EU markets.
