29.09.2017

According to field tests, soil moisture content in Belarus is mostly within its normal range. However, it remains above normal in Vitebsk region, some parts of Minsk region and in the north-east of Brest region.

Moderate air temperatures and adequate moisture supply facilitate growth of winter rape, germination of grains and emergence of winter cereals. Harvesting and planting of winter crops are complicated in the fields with excessive soil moisture.
