Romania. Most growing regions need productive precipitation ahead of planting


Elevated air temperatures (on average 2..4°С above long-term normal) persisted in Romania this past week. The average daytime air temperature varied within -1..+9°С. On March 1, the thermometer in the south of the country showed +19°С.

Precipitation in the form of rain occurred mainly in the north (10-15 mm over the week). The warmer-than-normal weather has provoked the resumption of vegetative growth in winter crops that may have an adverse effect on crop development in spring.

In addition, excessive warmth aggravates soil drought in the south and southeast of Romania. Farmers are concerned about the lack of precipitation ahead of planting, reports UkrAgroConsult.
