Belgium


Site description

 

The site proposed for the project actually corresponds to the Belgian JECAM site and includes the whole Belgium, representing an acreage of 30 528 km².

Located in the Northern hemisphere, the country enjoys a temperate climate moderately humid, with an annual rainfall of about 780 mm generally well distributed over the year. Cloud coverage can therefore be frequent during the agricultural season.

The site topography is flat or slightly undulating with elevation between 20 and 200 meters. Soil is loamy and moderately well-drained, hence not requiring irrigation.

The main crops that can be found in Belgium are wheat, barley, potatoes, sugar beet and maize. The growing season strongly depends of the crop type: as winter crops, wheat and barley can be found between November and July, whereas maize and sugar beet can be observed from March to September as summer crops. Field size ranges from 3 to 15 ha.
