Kazakhstan. Frost and precipitation occurrences hamper planting of winter wheat


Moderately warm weather with precipitation and night frosts to 12˚C was observed in the south and south-east of Kazakhstan from October 21-31. Such weather conditions were less favorable for preparation of fields and completion of winter wheat planting, reports UkrAgroConsult.

In Almaty region, winter wheat is at stages varying from germination to emergence; its growth has stopped in some areas. The state of winter wheat is excellent and good everywhere. This excludes crops that stopped growing due to frosts: their condition is fair. In Zhambyl region the state of winter wheat is good everywhere, its plants are at stages ranging from germination to emergence. In South Kazakhstan region, farmers continue sowing winter wheat after pre-plant tillage.

UkrAgroConsult reminds that harvesting works were generally almost completed in Kazakhstan by November 1. Farmers harvested 23.68 MMT of cereals this year.
