Despite some unfavorable features of the current growing season, the weather conditions for the formation of an appropriate crop of early grains remain quite favorable, Tetyana Adamenko, Head of the Agrometeorology Department of the Hydrometeorological Center of Ukraine said on June 13.
“Despite the fact that we have seen a heat wave in Ukraine in recent days, and increased evaporation of soil moisture, it remains sufficient across most areas under early spring, warm-weather as well as winter crops. But not everywhere", – she said.
Today, there is the drought in Odessa, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, some parts of Dnipropetrovsk and central regions of Poltava oblasts.
However, T. Adamenko said that the crop had already been formed, so the yield decrease would not be critical due to the drought.
