Weather conditions were favorable for vegetation of winter and early spring grains during the first ten-day period of May, Ukrhydrometcenter informed.
“Growth and development of crops was slowed down slightly due to moderate warm or chill weather. However, there was no delay in crops development”, – they said.
The topsoil turned drier as the amount of rains was scarce.
At the same time, Ukrhydrometcenter noted local dry conditions (Kherson, Odessa, Donetsk oblasts).
The overall condition of agricultural crops was good and excellent.
