EU wheat drops as French harvest makes good progress.

European wheat prices fell, pressured by good harvest results in France and as the euro rise against the dollar hampered the competitiveness of European wheat on world markets. Front month September on the Paris-based Euronext exchange was down 0.1 percent or 0.25 euro at 171.00 euros a tonne. It had surged during a heatwave in France last week, which raised concern of damage to crops.
