Throughout the crop season, the JRC provides near-real-time Early Warning bulletins (national/ regional Bulletins), with a specific focus on the Sub-Saharan Africa, to highlight the development of potentially critical situations and forecast quantitative production one month prior to harvest.
The MARS bulletins offer in a near real time and in an operational context analyses and information on crop growth conditions and yield forecast at EU28 level and neighbouring countries like Ukraine, Black Sea area and Maghreb. The Bulletin archive gathers all Bulletins published since 1997.

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.
