Tridge summary

The European Union and Great Britain are expected to see a decrease in their gross grain harvest this year, with an estimated total of 295.5 million tons, according to the European trade association COCERAL. This is largely due to a reduction in the area sown with winter wheat following record autumn rains, resulting in a predicted wheat harvest of 134.1 million tons. However, forecasts for corn and barley harvests have been increased due to favorable weather conditions in some regions. Conversely, rapeseed production prospects have been lowered to 20.2 million tons due to unfavorable weather.
