Germany’s official harvest report was released on 26 August 2022 by the Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture (BMEL). The report contains preliminary harvest statistics on the country’s major crops. The 2022 harvest report shows mixed results: high yields for winter wheat, canola, and fruits are accompanied by massive losses in maize production. The report points to extreme weather events such as droughts and floods as key drivers of agricultural yield instability. These will bring further volatility to the sector as the impacts of climate change intensify.
