Kazakhstan. Frost might have caused killing of winter crops


The south and southeast of Kazakhstan, where winter crops are cultivated, were exposed to mostly below-normal air temperatures on December 1-10. Precipitation rates were below normal, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Night air temperature drops to -11-19˚С in the southeast, locally to -20-26˚С, and to -27˚С in the west may kill winter crops not covered with snow. Also, intensive thaws that occurred in the southern regions on December 1-10 might have affected hardiness of underdeveloped winter wheat crops and caused them to lose the first phase of hardening.

In the southeast and south of the country, the lowest soil temperature at the depth of winter wheat’s tillering node ranged from 0˚С to -6˚С.
