The present bulletin gives an outlook about the progress of cereal crops in the Mediterranean region. It provides early qualitative forecasting of the 2021-2022 campaign, with particular focus on soft wheat, durum wheat and barley. This third and last outlook reviews crop conditions from the sowing up to 31 May 2022, with a specific focus on the 1 May-31 May period, which is close to the harvest in several Mediterranean countries.

This crop monitoring and early warning initiative was progressively developed since 2016 by the MED-Amin network in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, providing an early qualitative assessment of crop condition and yield potential of three winter cereals (soft wheat, durum wheat, barley) based on a GEOGLAM like approach but with a two-steps methodology using remote sensing and feedback from national Focal Points which enabled to identify hot-spot of concerns at subnational level using nomenclature and pie-charts similar to GEOGLAM for AMIS (Agricultural Market Information System) and to disseminate corresponding warnings.
