29.07.2016

May and June weather conditions were unfavorable for field works in Russian region of Priamur. During this period this region received up to three months norm of precipitations. As a result sowing campaign was completed only at 96% of the planned area. Situation got worse early in June, when hail damaged 7.6 Th ha of soybean. 2 Th ha were completely lost and had to be resown.

Still, Priamur farmers are quite optimistic, considering the current weather conditions, which contribute to the further growth and development of soybean crops.
