Unfavourable prospects for current crops Food supply shortfall in current marketing year requiring exceptional assistance Unfavourable crop prospects and food supply shortfall

EUROPE: A reduction in cereal production is expected in the EU in 2005 after the bumper crop last year, reflecting an increase in the set-aside requirement, which will force down the area sown and the likelihood that yields will fall back from last year’s highs. A reduction in output is also in prospect in the Balkan countries where yields are not expected to match last year’s exceptionally good levels.In the European CIS protective snow cover is seen to reduce winterkill and prospects are for a good harvest throughout the region.
