According to the November issue of the JRC MARS Bulletin - Crop monitoring in Europe – which was published today, favourable weather conditions since mid-October allowed the sowing of winter cereals to catch up in most of Europe.
However, sowing activities remain behind in eastern Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria.
Favourable conditions arrived too late for rapeseed sowing in several of the main producing countries, and – at EU level - the area sown is expected to be below last year’s level and the 5-year average.
The latest information about global agricultural production hotspots for countries with food insecurity risks is available on the JRC’s ASAP (Anomaly hot Spots of Agricultural Production) site.
