Ukraine: Adverse weather conditions for winter grain sowing

Heavy rain in many regions of Ukraine after a severe drought could cause that a surface can be ordered from 500,000 acres with winter wheat. The winter wheat is particularly affected. At least half of the Ukrainian regions suffered from the drought in the second half of the summer and in the autumn. Adverse weather and heavy rains force some farmers to stop sowing. The soil must first dry so that the sowing can continue. The time requirement is at current temperatures for 5-7 days. Last year, the seeding was late so Tetyana Adamenko, head of the Agriculture Department of the national weather service. This year, it is very late. A late development is weaker and more prone to freezing temperatures the young plants.
Ukrainian winter wheat harvest is highly dependent on a sufficient soil moisture moderate temperatures in the winter and good conditions in the spring during the sowing in autumn. "The prospects are very bleak," says Adamenko.
So far, only 64% of the scheduled areas were ordered and the probability is high that 15-20% of the total for the winter sowing can not be ordered planned areas.
The Landwirtschaftsminsterium has the prognosis of the acreage of winter wheat with 7.4 million hectares last estimates, of which 6.2 million winter wheat of hectares of and 1.0 million hectares of winter barley.
Traders and analysts are optimistic but with estimates between 6.25 and 6.40 million hectares of winter wheat.
