French soft wheat crop ratings fall again, harvest underway

Fri, 12th Jul 2019 08:00

PARIS, July 12 (Reuters) - The condition of French soft wheat declined further in the week to July 8, with 73% of crops rated good or excellent against 76% the previous week, farm office FranceAgriMer said on Friday.

The score remained above the year-earlier level of 72%, FranceAgriMer's weekly report showed.

The crop ratings had fallen more sharply in the previous week during a late-June heatwave that brought record temperatures to France, the European Union's biggest crop producer.

Soft wheat harvesting in France was well underway, with 12% of the crop area harvested by July 8 against 1% a week earlier, the report showed.
