Russia. Harvesting and seeding campaign actively proceeding

10.10.2018

Russian farmers continue to actively harvest spring crops and sow winter crops. It should be noted that the conditions for wheat harvesting in Siberia improved during last week and the harvest advanced considerably to 82% against 58% a week before. Precipitation is forecast to occur again in the south of the Siberian federal district this week. However, this acceleration of harvesting does reduce the risk of failure to harvest the whole area, reports UkrAgroConsult.
