Weather conditions. Much warmer than usual weather dominated the Northwestern, Central, Volga, Southern, North Caucasian federal districts and Western Siberia in October.

Moisture supply. Plants in the Northwestern, Central, Volga districts enjoyed good moisture supply in October – it was only decreased in single southern areas. The Southern and North Caucasian federal districts received little rain (20-35 mm of precipitation over the month) that caused no significant constraints for fieldwork. Some eastern areas of the territory saw low precipitation in October, therefore the conditions for emergence and initial growth of winter crops were unfavorable there (emerged crops are occasionally sparse because of a soil moisture deficit). In Western Siberia, precipitation of various intensity occurred mostly in the form of snow, which now covers the fields almost everywhere (1 to 10-cm thick layer).

Crop condition. In most parts of the Northwestern, Central, Volga federal districts, growing conditions for winter grains were good and fair. Farmers in the Southern and North Caucasian federal districts were completing harvest of late grain crops, sunflower and planting of winter grains in favorable conditions. Harvest in most parts of Western Siberia has been finished. Winter grains have also stopped growing (5-10 days later than the long-term average in most areas), reports UkrAgroConsult.
