Precipitation in Kazakhstan delays harvesting


In the south and southeast of the country in the last week of June conditions for grain filling were favorable, but precipitation hindered harvesting works. Winter wheat is at the stage of flowering – complete ripeness, in some places - earing. Plant condition is good everywhere, in Zhambyl region winter wheat harvesting has started.

In the third decade of June favorable conditions for spring crops growth and development were observed, but rainfall caused development of weeds, pests and plant diseases. Abundant rainfall in the south of the country affected spring barley harvesting. Development phase: 3rd leaf formation - the appearance of the lower stem node in the northern regions and in the center of the country. In some places in the Karaganda region downpour damaged stems of spring wheat.

In Almaty region the condition of spring wheat is mostly good. Development phase: earing - wax ripeness, in the later sowings: tillering - the appearance of the lower stem node.

In South Kazakhstan and Zhambyl regions spring barley condition is good, the development phase: milk - complete ripeness, barley harvesting continues.
