Ukraine: uncharacteristically warm weather to not harm winter crops areas – N.Prisyazhnyuk
Despite the unusually warm weather conditions for the winter period, the condition of winter crops was within normal frames, declared Nikolai Prisyazhnyuk, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, on January 10.
According to him, winter crops were in good and satisfactory condition throughout nearly 7.2 mln ha, or 92%.
According N.Prisyazhnyuk, winter crops areas without snow cover and in good condition will withstand low temperatures to the level of -20 degrees.
However, during the autumn planting campaign agrarians used more high-quality seeds and applied more fertilizers, to improve the stability of winter crops to natural disasters.
