Russia urgently needs rain

Russia, one of the world's largest wheat exporters, is suffering from insufficient rainfall and urgently needs rain over the next few weeks so that winter wheat can be sown, reports the agricultural consultancy SovEcon. Despite the dry weather, Russian farmers have already sown winter wheat on 60% of the planned area or on 11 million hectares, which largely corresponds to the level at the same time last year. The topsoil is dry and the stocks do not have enough time to develop before winter, said Sovecon, one of the leading agricultural consultancies in Moscow, in a note. It's a bad setup for the 2021 crop, but not a catastrophic one yet, the company said. The situation is better, but still reminiscent of that in Ukraine, where farmers have not yet started active sowing due to the dry weather. The weather stayed dry in almost all Russian winter wheat growing areas last week, with the exception of parts of the Volga and the central region, where it rained lightly. Farmers in southern Russia still have time to spare and rain is expected to arrive in western Russia this week, Sovecon said.
