Ukraine. Planting of winter rape was conducted in difficult conditions



Consulting Agency


Weather conditions. The end of August featured dry, hot weather. Night air temperatures somewhat decreased in early September, but daytime ones went up.

Moisture supply. Soil moisture was not replenished on August 21-31 as no precipitation occurred at the time. The fields intended for planting winter crops for 2020 were slightly wet or almost dry all over the country. Soil drought intensified and expanded.

Planting of winter rape, which is to be completed by September 10 according to scientific recommendations, was conducted in difficult conditions and sometimes even stopped because of absolutely dry soil. Only small areas in the western and northern regions had fair moisture content in the topsoil, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Crop condition is mostly good and fair.
