Adds details on other crops

PARIS, April 14 (Reuters)The condition of French soft wheat improved slightly in the week to April 10, with 94% of crops rated to be in good or excellent condition compared with 93% the previous week, farm office FranceAgriMer said on Friday.

The score was above the 92% registered a year earlier, it said in a cereal crop report.

For winter barley, 92% of the crop was rated good or excellent, unchanged from the previous week and up from 87% a year earlier. The spring barley rating had fallen to 95% from 97% by April 3, still above the 92% at the same point in 2022.

For durum wheat, the rating fell to 91% from 92% the previous week, still well above the 84% recorded a year earlier.

Grain maize sowings stood at 12% of the expected area planted by April 10, in line with the five-year average, the office said. They were at 2% a week earlier.
