Romania. Winter cereals proceeded to milky ripeness in some fields


Rains occurred all over the country this past week. They totaled some 15-25 mm, reaching 50 mm in the southern, central and eastern regions. This precipitation replenished soil moisture content available to winter cereals, though the soil is still too dry in some central and western areas.

The daytime air temperature was within a range of +15..+22 С.

Winter barley and winter wheat are at the stages of heading and flowering, even at the milky stage in the south where the soil contains enough moisture. Winter rape is at the stages of blooming and pod formation, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Corn crops have proceeded to the stage of 4-9 leaves, while sunflower has formed 3-14 true leaves per plant.
