High Summer Crop Yields at EU-28 Level

September was drier and slightly warmer than usual in most of Europe, permitting good conditions for the ripening and harvest of summer crops. Above-average precipitation with heavy rainstorms was recorded, however, over the Balkans, Turkey, the eastern part of central Europe and Portugal. During the first two weeks of October, wetter conditions prevailed in western Europe and the southern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula, while warm and dry conditions continued over all other European regions. No areas of concern with widespread impact on the yields of summer crops are reported for this period, despite the plentiful rainfall which hampered harvest activities over Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, the Balkans and partially in Germany and Turkey. Summer crops yields at EU-28 level are high and maize yields in Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria are forecast more than 25 % above the five year average.
