WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Drought conditions will continue to impact the winter wheat crop in many 
areas of the southern plains. Crop ratings will continue to decline. 
    Recent warm temperatures and rain will favor development of wheat running 
well ahead of normal due to the well above normal temperatures. 
    Wheat areas of Ukraine, west and south Russia are warmer at this time after 
prior extreme cold. Snow cover is widespread and deep due to recent snow 
storms. Moisture for this crop should be adequate to surplus when this snow 
melts during the spring. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe have turned warmer during the past week, 
especially in western Europe. Episodes of rain will provide favorable moisture 
for crops in western and central Europe during the coming weeks. Wheat areas in 
Spain and Italy will benefit from above normal winter time precipitation at 
this time, mostly rain in Spain and snow and rain in Italy. 
   An increase in rain activity through east-central China during the late 
winter period will help improve soil moisture and irrigation in key winter 
wheat areas. 
   Winter time rainfall through in Morocco and western Algeria. The added 
moisture will favor vegetative growth, although prior cold weather has slowed 
development somewhat. 
   Key winter wheat areas of Pakistan and India are dry and very warm at this 
time, increasing stress to this crop.
