The European Agritel Tour
4 reports, 1 Crop Tour
"Follow up the cereal campaign in Europe." – This has been the goal of the European Agritel Tour since its launch in 2015. The EAT-Team is travelling major European wheat producers in order to provide first-hand information and profound regional analyses. The result of each tour, conducted in December, April, and June respectively, is an updated assessment of a country’s wheat production potential. It is investigated, if current market expectations actually answer to the reality in the fields.
In order to provide high-quality information, a scientific research methodology has been developed, assuring a coherent investigation of the production outlook. Enhanced by agronomic climate modelling, exhaustive quarterly analyses allow for a reliable follow-up of each country’s wheat production. Results are made available in four steps in December, April, June, and September.
What is the EAT Crop Tour?
What is a crop tour ?
During our EAT crop tour, each country’s most important wheat production areas will be visited. They are chosen according to their production potential and yield variation. Besides the sampling based on a methodology validated by Agritel, meetings with local operators will enrich and proof findings so finally a potential yield and production will be calculated one month before the harvest. The result is a qualified estimation of the respective national wheat production.
What is in for you ?
Join us on our crop tour
Ukraine became one of the major players in global grain trade thanks to an increasing performance in farming and logistics. However, the production potential in 2016 appears to be critical already, knowing that yields usually fluctuate considerably. Will the export potential be reduced?
With their increasing production potential and competences, Romania by now has become one of the most important newcomers in European grain trade. Yields strongly vary in the EU exporter No. 3 while transparency on its agricultural market is still limited.
Germany is the EU’s second largest exporter of wheat. The country’s highly heterogeneous agricultural sector is specialised in the production of high-quality wheat. A regional view of the wheat production allows to understand how the agricultural sector works.
Meet the Team
A methodology proved right
EAT 2015 allowed us to validate our methodology. Indeed, our forecasts for that year’s harvest turned out to correspond with estimations from different organisations realized two months after the harvest. This is the main reason motivating us to provide our customers with high quality information on a large scale for the 2016/17 campaign.
Practical field work
This is a dynamic experience with various encounters! The crop tour is an excellent way to put into practice the company’s daily work. I invite you to join us!
Anticipate the harvest
Thanks to the network of local operators we have built, we are also able to share their opinions regarding wheat conditions all over the vegetative cycle. Subscribing to the program will allow you to get the scoop on crop conditions, harvest estimates and even quality aspects before the rest of the market! Remind that we focus on key European exporting countries, which may be your competitors!
