11.08.2017

Above-normal air temperatures were reported all over the country (up 6..9ºС from the long-term average for this time). Average air temperatures varied within +25..+33ºС. The highest temperature hit +40ºС in the south and south-west.

Soil moisture content in the one-meter layer is enough almost all over the country, except for the west and south-west. In fact, no precipitation occurred last week. The temperature surge was unfavorable for growing spring crops and provoked soil moisture evaporation

Corn plants are at the stages of flowering and milk ripeness, even at wax ripeness in the south. Sunflower plants are at wax and full ripeness.
