WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Very timely and beneficial rains are expected during the next 5 days in the 
southern plains. This will improve conditions for developing what where crop 
ratings have been deteriorating due to hot/dry weather depleting soil moisture. 
    Mostly favorable conditions for developing winter wheat in the southeast 
Midwest and Delta states. 
    Winter wheat in west and central Europe is reported to be in fair to good 
condition at this time. Reports suggest that winter wheat has broken dormancy 
in western Europe about a month ahead of normal. Generous rains through key 
growing areas of France and Germany during March should ease concerns over 
winter dryness and favor the vegetative crop. Showers in eastern Europe favor 
greening crops at this time. 
    Winter wheat in east Ukraine, west and south Russia is reported to be in 
good to excellent condition at this time. Crop development is running at up to 
4 weeks ahead of normal. Short term dryness is of some concern for wheat areas 
of South and west Ukraine (25-50 percent of normal past 60 days). 
   Mostly favorable conditions for winter wheat through east-central China at 
this time. Rain has occurred through southern areas recently with some light 
precipitation in the north as well. Wheat is likely nearing reproduction at 
this time. 
   Wheat in Pakistan and north India benefited from significant rain and cool 
temperatures late in January, especially any winter wheat that was reproductive 
at the time. Additional beneficial rainfall has been reported during March as 
well. 
   Periodic showers through winter wheat areas of northwest Africa has supplied 
favorable moisture for most of the key growing belt. Wheat is vegetative to 
flowering at this time. Prospects are good to excellent, especially in Morocco.
