The year's Summer has been driest for the European Union that might hurt regional production prospects for Wheat, as much of the continent received below-average rain later in April.

According to the forecast, the output in The European Union will shrink about 7% and next season's exports to fall almost a fifth to 26.5 million tons.

This year's prediction, The wheat production in Britain and 27 states of the European Union is to fall around 6% to 145 million tones. Dryness in soil may hamper the growth of freshly emerging plants.

In France, soft wheat & Winter barley conditions dipped as the crops also got to a poor start due to water-logged soil last autumn.

Recent decline only implies that these crops are now in faulty condition for mid-April growth as Agricultural ministry of France has estimated that their soft-wheat area would decrease by 7.5pc from the previous year to a 17 year low of 4.6 million hectares. FranceAgriMer rating on soft-wheat show nations crop in the worst shape since the past nine years.

The conditions in Germany have been average as the mild winter has boosted winter-wheat prospects, and dry weather has helped spring-winter. Its 2020 wheat harvest forecasted around 23 Million tones.

In Poland, wheat harvest was expected to be more than last year, and it only required rain to maintain the right crop conditions. Britain's wheat production is forecasted to be sharply lower due to excessive rain in Autumn & Winter, disturbing the winter-planting program hampering crop development.

Since last month as conditions have started improving, there is less time for crops to benefit as harvesting begins soon.

This might also result in a fall in exports. On the top of its corona-virus pandemic impact on the economy could also hurt wheat demand. Romania, The second biggest wheat exporter in the EU, did ban grain export during the pandemic in April, and the government decided to prohibit exports of Wheat, corn, rice to countries outside the European Union.
