April 2021 was one of the coldest of the last 15 years in most of France, stressing crops such as rapeseed and wheat.
According to the NDVI, crops seem not to be impacted in the areas the most exposed by very low temperatures.
The precipitation since March are the lowest of the last 15 years in an important part of the country. This is today the main concern for crops potential.
Vigor has declined in April and vegetation indices are now lower than average in a large part of France, which seems to get bigger over time.
