Reduced yield outlook for summer crops in Europe - JRC MARS
European Commission JRC
Monday, July 25, 2022
According to the latest JRC MARS Bulletin - Crop monitoring in Europe, the yield outlook for EU summer crops was substantially reduced due to continued hot and/or dry weather conditions in much of Europe. However, EU sugar beet appears to remain resilient and the overall MARS yield forecast is maintained at 77.4 tonnes per hectare, 4% above the 5 year average. The yield estimate France is maintained at the historical trend level. In Germany, soil moisture is of concern and will most likely lead to a further downward revision in the August MARS bulletin. In Poland, MARS states that the conditions for sugar beet and potato are rather satisfactory. MARS sugar beet yield estimates are sharply down in Spain (-8.5% compared with the 5 year average), Italy (-9.7%) and Romania (4.5%).Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
As I browse the web researching various topics concerning the EU and UK sugar markets, I've been bookmarking interesting weblinks. Some of these are news clippings, some are links to official documents, and some are interesting data sources.
