Experts also point out that most of this year's European wheat harvest does not show any serious contamination with mycotoxins. At the same time, wheat harvested in France, Germany, Poland and the Baltic States has a low protein content, although other quality indicators are generally satisfactory for processing. Therefore, 68% of the mild wheat crop in the EU is expected to meet flour standards.

In addition, the prognosis for the barley harvest in the EU increased by 2022 million tons per month to 23 million tons (+ 1 million tons per year) in 51/0,8.

The first results of the corn harvest confirm the low yield in France, Romania, Germany and Hungary. The forecast for total grain production in the EU per month is reduced by 2,5 million tons to 52,9 million tons (2021/22 to 70 million tons).
