Ukraine. Winter grains mostly in good condition

12.11.2018

The November 1-9 weather was warm, sunny, with light precipitation and morning fogs. The average daily air temperature during November 1-10 varied within +5.0… +12.50С.

Light precipitation in the form of rain only occurred locally in the north and east, with its rates ranging from 0.2 to 17 mm. The rest of the country received no precipitation, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Rain somewhat replenished soil moisture on October 21-31, but its amount was insufficient in many regions for complete moisture saturation of the soil. At the same time, despite the substantial precipitation deficit, fogs, abundant dew, and high relative air humidity maintained topsoil moisture at a fair level, except for many areas in Kherson region as well as Odesa and Mykolaiv regions that are still exposed to drought.

According to weather forecasts, winter is not expected to set in before the middle of November, therefore average daily air temperatures will be high enough for winter crops to grow slowly almost all over the country. They are only likely to stop growing by November 11 in easternmost and northeasternmost parts of Ukraine, where the average daily air temperature is expected to drop below +3-50С.
