Belarus. Slow vegetation of winter crops will continue


Since the start of grain sowing and till October, 20 sum of the accumulated effective warmth was 20-40°С lower than last year. Due to this winter crops were developing rather slowly and now development pace lags behind last year. Despite low amount of rains in the second half of October soil moisture stocks remain sufficient in the major part of the fields. Expected rains will maintain sufficient soil moisture level.

Plants sown by mid-September are mainly at tillering stage. Later sown plants are at the stage of 3rd leave formation. Slow vegetation will continue shortly in the major part of the republic.
