10.11.2016

Last week air temperature fluctuated within +5..+15ºС with maximum reaching +20ºС and minimum lowering to -2ºС. 5 – 10 cm soil layer warmed to +4..+14ºС in the daytime.

Light rains were observed across the whole territory Romania (5-15 mm over the week). In the North-Eastern regions, where summer drought was severe, soil moisture stocks are at satisfactory and optimal level now. Good moistening of the upper soil layer is observed all over Romania, contributing to successful development of winter crops.

According to UkrAgroConsult, winter grain crops are at the stage of 3rd leave formation and tillering. This week sleet and wet snow is expected in the Northern regions, where sowing campaign is still not completed in some areas. In the Southern regions winter grains formed a good root system.

Winter rapeseed continued to form leave rosette (5-10 leaves). According to visual estimates, plants gave even sprouts in the Southern regions and will enter winter in a well-developed condition, informs UkrAgroConsult.
