Abstract: Promising crop season for grain maize confirmed at EU27 level Total cereals production is estimated at 280,10 Mt at EU27 level which is -3.0 % less than the 5 years’ average. In comparison with last year, the production for EU27 of winter cereals will be lower by -1.7 % for soft wheat, -9.9 % for winter barley and -12.6 % for durum wheat. The production of grain maize and spring barley is forecast at higher levels (+8.0 % and +5.2 % respectively in comparison with last year). Yields for all crops are forecast higher than both those of 2010 and the 5 years’ average, except soft wheat (-0.1 % vs 2010), winter barley (-2.4 %) and rapeseed (-2.8%). Yield forecast for grain maize is higher than the 5 years’ average in all EU27 producers. Among the main producers, the production forecast is higher in comparison to 2010 (from +4.0 % in IT to +16.6 % in ES). In RO the production is also forecast at a higher level than in 2010 (+7.8 %) but this reflects rather the increase in the acreage (+16.1 %) than the yield performance (-7.1 %).
