EU crop yield forecasts for 2007

he European Commission's in-house scientific service, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), on 25 July 2007 released its annual crop yield forecast for Europe. The central prediction is that the 2007 total cereal harvest will be 276 million tonnes or 1,6 per cent below the average of the last five years with Central and Eastern Europe losing out the most. This Memorandum provides information, maps and graphs on the forecast of cereal production. During the agricultural season, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) regularly issues forecasts for the main crop yields and produces analyses of the impact of weather conditions on crop production. These are based on advanced methodologies using satellite remote sensing and mathematical models which simulate crop growth.
