A combine harvester decants threshed grains onto a truck on a wheat field near Somberek, 190km south of Budapest, Hungary, 12 June 2018. Wheat harvest has started over two weeks earlier than usual in Hungary, where wheat and barley yields are expected to fall short of last year's, but corn and sunflower crops may even reach a record amount.

Today the European Commission adopted its report on the development of plant proteins in the EU. The report reviews the supply and demand situation for plant proteins (such as rapeseed, sunflower seeds or lentils) and explores ways in which to further develop their production in an economically and environmentally sound way.
The report presents existing policy instruments and new policy proposals which can contribute to realize the economic and environmental potential of protein plants in the EU.
While animal feed remains the most important outlet (93%), the market for plant proteins is seeing double-digit growth, driven by demand for meat and dairy alternatives.
