The provisional 2018 wheat harvest for the UK is 14.1 million tonnes, a decrease of 5.1 per cent on 2017. It is below the five-year average (2013-2017) of 14.8 million tonnes.

 

The provisional barley production figure for the UK has fallen by 7.9% to 6.6mt in 2018. It is below the five-year average (2013-2017) of 7mt.

 

 

Defra says crop production has been affected by the weather this year - high rainfall in spring and a long dry spell with high temperatures in the summer - causing varying yields across regions of the UK.
