WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    The overall dry weather pattern is expected to continue in the southern 
plains during the next 10 days. More rain will be needed to support the crop 
when it breaks dormancy. Episodes of cold weather will provide additional 
stress to a crop already experiencing dryness. 
    Recent warm temperatures have melted snow cover through key winter wheat 
areas of Turkey. Moisture supplies should favor any vegetative growth of winter 
wheat at this time. 
    Very cold weather covers wheat areas of Russia and Ukraine at this time. 
Wheat is likely protected from the coldest of this weather by an adequate to 
deep snow cover in most cases. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe will also see well below normal temperatures 
for several more days. However, it does not appear to be cold enough to harm 
dormant winter wheat even in areas without a protective snow cover. However, 
this will need to be watched until the cold snap breaks. Wheat areas in Spain 
and Italy will benefit from above normal winter time precipitation at this 
time, most rain in Spain and snow and rain in Italy. 
   Seasonal weather through the North China Plain at this time. No significant 
concerns for the dormant winter wheat crop. 
   Winter time rainfall and even mountain snow 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.
