Romania. Air temperature decrease put winter rape under the risk of frost damage


A cold snap occurred in Romania this past week. Air temperature was 4..2°С below multi-year normal. Its daytime average fell to -7..+5°С.

Precipitation in the form of rain and sleet was seen everywhere (10-25 mm), except for the southeast of the country. It gradually eases soil drought, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Snow cover developed in spots across the northeast and south of Romania. In the rest of the country, winter crops were exposed to the risk of frost damage after air temperature had dropped below -10°C..-15°C. Crops that entered dormancy in weakened condition are particularly susceptible to this risk.

Winter grains are in the tillering stage. Winter rape plants are in the stage of leaf rosette.
