An estimated 93% of French soft wheat crops were in good or excellent condition in the week to Feb. 13, up from 92% the previous week, the data showed.
The score was slightly below the 95% registered a year earlier, it said in a cereal crop report.
The rating was also down from the 97% estimated in FranceAgriMer's previous crop report in early December.
The data supports market expectations that crops came through unharmed after mild and freezing spells since December, though a very dry February is causing concern over soil moisture for the spring growing period.
For winter barley, 92% of the crop was rated good or excellent, while durum wheat scored 93%.
Farmers had made rapid progress in sowing spring barley, the first major cereal crop to be drilled at the end of winter.
Some 58% of the expected area had been sown, compared with 26% for the same week last year and an average 16% over the previous five years, FranceAgriMer's data shows.
