the Experts in the second Coceral forecast for 2020 was reduced in comparison with the previous report, assessment of the grain harvest in the EU including the UK with 302,7 to 302,5 million tonnes, 5.2 million tonnes lower than in 2019

 

the Forecast of wheat production (excluding durum) decreased from 137,9 to 136.5 million tonnes, while last year its yield amounted to 145.7 million tonnes Decrease in production due to a sharp reduction in acreage in the UK due to the strong rains in the fall at planting time.

 

Assessment of production of barley increased from 60.8 to 61.8 million tonnes, although it will yield 62,2 million tons collected last year. The yield increases due to expansion of acreage under spring barley in the UK by reducing the sowing areas of winter wheat and oilseed rape.

 

the Forecast of corn production was left at the level of 65 million tonnes, which will exceed last year's 61 million tonnes, it is Expected that due to the excessively wet weather during the sowing of winter grain sowing area of maize in comparison with the 2019 year will increase from 8.5 to 9 million hectares, and most of all in France, Germany and Poland.

 

Evaluation of rape production decreased from 17.1 to 17 million tons because of an increase in sowing areas in France could not fully offset the decline in the UK.
