Current outlook is predominantly positive

Winter crops are generally in good shape and well developed in the EU due to the mild winter conditions. In general, prospects for the new season are promising. At this stage of the season the forecasts are based on the historical trend or average values.

In most of the EU-28, temperature conditions were close to the long-term average during the period of review (1 February-15 March). North-eastern Europe experienced significantly warmer-than-usual conditions, with anomalies w.r.t the long-term average exceeding 4°C.

Significantly drier-than-usual conditions (with precipitation less than 50% of the long-term average) occurred over the western Iberian Peninsula, where soil water availability is becoming a concern; as well as in eastern Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland, where soil moisture contents are still satisfying.

Significantly wetter-than-usual conditions, in several places associated with water logging, were observed in northeastern Spain, in the Italian Peninsula, the Balkans and central-western Turkey.
