Cereal yield gaps across Europe.

A country-by-country bottom-up approach was used to estimate yield gaps for cereals. In Europe, actual cereal yields are at 30–90 percent of their potential. Opportunities for increased cereal production mainly exist in Eastern Europe. Unlocking the growth potential requires a large increase of crop nitrogen uptake.
