PARIS: Consultancy Strategie Grains raised its forecast for France’s soft wheat crop this year to 38.98 million from a previous estimate of 38.2 million tonnes and 34 million tonnes harvested in 2018.

The estimate was based on an average yield in the European Union’s largest wheat producer at 7.77 tonnes per hectare (t/ha), near the record 7.88 t/ha reached in 2015 when the harvest stood at 40.9 million tonnes.
