Winter crops in most fields were at full ripeness. Their large-scale harvest has begun. The conditions for this work were chiefly favorable.

Corn plants were mainly at tasseling, locally already at the cob flowering stage. Their condition was largely good. Sunflower plants continued flowering in most of Moldova
