Yield forecasts for all crops at EU-28 level have been lowered compared to last month’s forecast due suboptimal weather conditions. The forecast for winter cereals remains above the 5-year average but the forecast for total cereals dropped just below the 5-year average, due to the significant downward revision for grain maize.

Prolonged and intense heat waves in July affected important cropland areas in northern Italy, France, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary. Maximum temperatures often exceeded 35°C and locally reached 40°C, hitting spring and winter crops during grain filling and maize while flowering. In Spain, drought conditions worsened in the central and southern regions, causing severe damages to non-irrigated crops during grain formation and grain filling stages. Dry and hot conditions also prevailed over Ukraine and Belarus reducing the yields expectations for winter crops. In the United Kingdom, the southern regions are experiencing a persistent rainfall deficit. A surplus of rain is still persistent in northern Europe, affecting spring crops during the flowering stages in Finland. A surplus of precipitation is also recorded in northern Turkey, with beneficial effects for summer crops.
