WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Some beneficial precipitation in central Kansas but not enough to end 
dryness concerns for the crop overall. Crop ratings are poor in many areas. 
Little precipitation is expected during the next 7 days. 
    Recent warm temperatures and rain in Turkey 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 have turned colder again 
during the weekend. 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 colder again during the weekend 
period. Recent 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. Colder temperatures early this week will 
slow development. 
   Key winter wheat areas of Pakistan and India are dry and warm at this time, 
increasing stress to this crop.
