In France on June 3 to 5, damage to grain crops was reported in 65 of the country's 101 departments. About 50,000 lightning strikes were recorded in one 24-hour period, with wind gusts as high as 106 kilometres per hour recorded.

Parched soils and record heat conditions are quickly eroding this season's grain production prospects in France, adding to grain supply woes across the globe.
