Abstract: PRODUCTION LEVELS ABOVE AVERAGE IN MEDITERRANEAN REGION, EASTERN EUROPE, UK AND IRELAND. VULNERABLE REGIONS IN WESTERN EUROPE AS A CONSEQUENCE OF SCARCE RAINFALL DURING SPRING. Temperature accumulation from March to May above average in most of Europe. Water stress can affect biomass production in France, Benelux and Germany. Precipitation accumulated since winter and the milder than usual spring season resulted in an anticipated growth cycle for pastures all over Europe, except for Baltic countries and Poland, resulting in biomass production below the standard values. In Western Europe the lack of rainfall during April and May could impact future production levels in France and Germany. Expectations for the Mediterranean region, United Kingdom and Ireland are slightly above past production levels.
