Crop monitoring in Europe in April 2024

Published Apr 26, 2024

Tridge summary

Europe is experiencing mixed agricultural conditions due to varying weather patterns. Warm spring temperatures and adequate water supply in the Iberian Peninsula have improved yield forecasts for durum wheat, spring barley, and triticale, while overly wet conditions in northwestern Europe have negatively affected yield potential and made sowing difficult. Water shortages have developed in central Greece and Cyprus, and severe drought impacts on winter crops are being observed in large parts of Morocco and western Algeria. High temperatures and moderate rainfall in Poland have helped reduce excess water levels in the soil, creating favorable conditions for crop development.

As we read in the report, this year's exceptionally warm spring temperatures, combined with adequate water supply in most areas of Europe, favored winter crops and created favorable conditions for the sowing and emergence of spring cereals and spring crops. Weather conditions were particularly favorable on the Iberian Peninsula, leading to upwards in EU yield forecasts for durum wheat, spring barley and triticale. However, overly wet conditions in northwestern Europe have negatively impacted yield potential and made sowing difficult; most severely in Ireland and Great Britain. Conditions have improved somewhat in northern and parts of western France, as well as in Belgium, the Netherlands and northwest Germany, but winter crops in inadequately drained fields are unlikely to fully recover from excessively wet conditions in the fall and winter. Water shortages, negatively affecting winter crops, have developed in central Greece and Cyprus. In Sicily, as well as in eastern Romania, ...
