Belarus. Thaw to shortly destroy snow cover

16.12.2016

The meteorological conditions in Belarus are currently favorable for survival of winter crops, reports UkrAgroConsult. Snow cover protected crops against freeze that occurred in the first week of December. Soil temperature at the tillering node depth in winter cereal plantings is at sub-zero values close to 0°C.

As thaw has set in, snow cover will be destroyed in the near future. The meteorological situation may somewhat deteriorate in mid-December due to another cold-snap expected.

More information on crop conditions and progress in harvesting/seeding campaign in the countries of Black Sea Region is available to subscribers for weekly market report "Black Sea Grain & Oil" by UkrAgroConsult.
