The article reports that exportable surpluses will be key to the 2008-2009 marketing year in Europe as harvest is well under way in the region and with large crops expected in most countries. Wet weather has raised quality concerns in France and Germany, while Denmark and Poland are thought to have lost yield to dry weather. This could mean a large surplus of feed grains in Europe, and a tight situation for quality grains.
