French Corn 7% Harvested as of Oct. 1 as Wheat Sowing Advances

Oct. 8 (Bloomberg) -- France’s corn crop, the European Union’s largest, was 7 percent harvested as of Oct. 1 from 2 percent a week earlier, crop office FranceAgriMer reported.

French farmers had cut 32 percent of their corn a year earlier, the Montreuil-sous-Bois, France-based office wrote in an online harvest report.

The winter-barley crop for harvesting next year was 6 percent planted as of Oct. 1 from 2 percent the previous week, and compared with 23 percent at the same time in 2011, according to the crop office.

French farmers had planted 4 percent of the soft wheat crop at the start of last week, compared with 1 percent seven days earlier and 14 percent at the same time last year, FranceAgriMer wrote.
