The article reports that the European Union (EU) has faced a mixed harvest, which has been dominated by weather. Wheat output is set to reach almost 150 million (m) tonnes, up 30m tonnes on the year. The EU will need to price wheat exports competitively and also carry over a larger stock into the following season. Quality, therefore, will be the key to securing export sales. In France, latest estimates from the national office suggest wheat production could reach 37.4m tonnes. In Germany, wheat production is expected to rise by 17.5%.
