JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE
The European Commission's in-house science service
Yield forecasts for spring and summer crops at the EU-28 level have been revised downwards for the second consecutive bulletin due to continued hot and mostly dry conditions in large parts of Europe. Maize and sunflower crops were particularly affected.
As the Commission's in-house science service, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle. Working in close cooperation with policy Directorates-General, the JRC addresses key societal challenges while stimulating innovation through developing new methods, tools and standards, and sharing its know-how with the Member States, the scientific community and international partners.
