Main attention on corn market is focused now on the weather conditions influencing Ukrainian corn

03.08.2016

Last week upper layer of soil warmed to 41-62°С in the daytime. Short term rains were observed only in the Eastern and Northern regions with average quantity reaching 5-16.6 mm (10-days norm is 21-23 mm), which was rather unfavorable for further growth and development of corn.

Though, despite the heat current soil moisture reserves in the key producing regions (North-East and Central parts) remain close to norms and corn condition is better than last year. Moisture reserves are getting to the deficit values in the Southern regions, where soil drought phenomena are started to be observed.
