This is also down 7.0 million tons or 10.8 percent from the 5-year average. Yield is estimated at 6.16 tons per hectare, down 6.3 percent from last month and 21.9 percent from last year’s record. Area is estimated down 0.06 million hectares to 9.4 million. The current acreage is 0.1 million hectares or 1.3 percent below last year, but 1.5 percent above the 5-year average.

Almost every producing nation in the EU is estimated to have lower production after a summer with excessive heat and dryness. Rainfall returned to most areas in August, preventing a larger decline but significant damage is still being realized.
