The UK contributes statistical data to the European Commission cereals harvest forecast, which is reviewed each month. The EU forecast for 2016/17, as at the end of October, indicates total cereals availability of 294.8 million tonnes. This represents a 5.4% reduction on 2015/16. EU harvest forecasts are published on the Commission’s website.
