Ukraine: weather conditions in September the worst 10 years

The pace of winter wheat sowing in Ukraine for the 2021 harvest is as slow as it was 10 years ago due to the persistent drought. This could lead to the sowing dragging on into December, reports the APK-Inform analyst.
Ukrainian Ministry of Economy released its first official update on sowing progress yesterday. Accordingly, as of September 28, 1.5 million hectares or 25% of the expected sowing area have been cultivated. APK-Inform announced that 2.9 million hectares had been sown at the same time last year. In 2015, when comparable weather conditions prevailed, 2.8 million hectares were cultivated with winter wheat as of September 28.
Analysts point out that very late sowing dates increase the risk of under-yielding when winter comes and stocks are still underdeveloped.
Weather services report that weather conditions this month were the worst in 10 years. Due to the severe drought, only 10-15% of the agricultural land is suitable for winter grain sowing for the 2021 harvest.
Ukraine controls over 16% of global grain exports and exported 57.2 million tons of grain in the 2019/20 season.For the current 2020/21 season, the government expects a decline in exports to 47.4 million tons.
