The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) has developed and runs a crop yield forecasting system which provides timely forecasts of crop production for Europe. The MARS Crop Yield Forecasting System monitors crop vegetation growth, including the short-term effects of meteorological events on crop production. It also provides seasonal yield forecasts of key European crops, thereby contributing to the evaluation of global production estimates.
