Abstract: SUMMER RAINFALL INCREASED BIOMASS PRODUCTION IN THE NORTHERN HALF OF EUROPE, DRY PERIOD IN MEDITERRANEAN BASIN HIGHLIGHT Expectations slightly above seasonal average values in most of Europe. Vulnerable areas after dry period in spring have recovered biomass production. Rainfall accumulation during July and August benefited pasture production levels at the end of the summer throughout Europe with the exception of the Mediterranean region. This allowed recovering biomass production levels in France, Benelux and Germany, which have been in a vulnerable situation after the dry period experienced during spring. Good expectations are depicted for Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia where rainfall was accompanied by air temperatures slightly above the seasonal average.
