Corn harvesting in Belarus is 18% complete


The total of effective degree-days above +5°С accumulated since the start of the sowing of winter cereals exceeds the long-term average. Winter cereals are largely at the emergence and three-leaf stages. Those planted in late September and early October are at the stage of seed germination.

Winter cereals of early planting dates (late August – early September) are at the tillering stage. The formation of leaf rosettes continues in winter rape plants. Winter crops are in good condition. The weather will be fair for their development in the near future, reports UkrAgroConsult.
