Winter crops continue to be in good shape and no major concerns for the spring sowing campaign have emerged. The yield outlook is predominantly positive. Moreover higher-than-usual temperatures since February and generally sufficient precipitation levels suggest a highly favourable start to the pasture season.

In general crop growth conditions throughout Europe are beneficial. This is reflected in our forecasts, which at EU- 28 level are above average of the last five years. However, two regions with negative conditions impacting crop development are identified in Spain (Andalucia) and Italy (Puglia) mainly due to water scarcity. In general low rates of precipitation (less than 50% of the long-term average) were observed in eastern Spain, most of Italy, the western Balkan Peninsula, Hungary, southern Slovakia, and some regions of the Czech Republic and southern Turkey. South-western Europe, the Maghreb countries and northern Russia experienced significantly warmer-than-usual weather conditions, while temperatures in Turkey and southern Russia remained below the long-term average.
