This is reported by World Grain, citing data from a report by the US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS).
According to the report, a combination of cold, dry April and wet May, followed by warmer weather in June and July with heavy downpours, contributed to crop development and improvement.
USDA forecasts UK wheat production in 2021/22 MY to be 15m tonnes, which, if realised, would be 5m tonnes higher than the wheat crop produced in the previous marketing year.
According to the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board’s (AHDB) crop development tool, two-thirds of the winter wheat crop is rated as good or excellent, with only a small proportion rated as poor or very poor. Around 50% of spring wheat is in good to excellent condition.
“Despite reduced acreage, UK barley production in 2021/22 MY is expected to be 7.2m tonnes. Around two-thirds of winter barley is also in good to excellent condition, and the spring crop, which rooted well when planted in March and April, is in good condition,” the report says
