June 20 (Bloomberg) -- Spain has a dry and warm spring with below-normal rainfall, the Agriculture Ministry reported.

Rainfall in the March-through-May period was 147 millimeters (5.8 inches), 16 percent below normal, the ministry wrote in a report on its website today. Temperatures averaged 14.1 degrees Celsius (57.4 degrees Fahrenheit), 1.1 degrees higher than normal for the three-month span.

“The only relatively wet month of the trimester was April, while both in March and May there was a clear precipitation deficit compared with normal values,” the ministry wrote.

Spanish winter-grain production may fall 33 percent to 11.4 million metric tons after dry weather hurt crops, farm and food-industry group Cooperativas Agro-Alimentarias forecast earlier this month.
