    Continued hot and mostly dry conditions in much of Europe in July and early August have led to a further reduction in the yield forecasts for spring and summer crops at the EU-28 level, particularly for maize and sunflower crops. The yield outlook for winter cereals is slightly improved thanks to favourable weather conditions in northern parts of Europe. Overall, the yield forecast for total cereals dropped to almost 10% below last year’s level, and to 1% below the five-year average.

    Yield forecasts for all crops at EU-28 level have been lowered compared to last month’s forecast due suboptimal weather conditions. The forecast for winter cereals remains above the 5-year average, but the forecast for total cereals dropped just below the 5-year average, due to the significant downward revisions for grain maize.
