WORLD GRAIN PROSPECTS 
 
    Mostly favorable conditions, at this time, for winter grain in Ukraine and 
south Russia. Fall rainfall helped recharge soil moisture in key growing areas, 
after late summer dryness and heat. Grain is dormant in most areas at this 
time. Snow cover is deep in some locations due to recent stormy weather. This 
will help protect the crop in the event of colder temperatures. 
    Mainly favorable conditions for winter grains through western and eastern 
Europe at this time. However, there is some concern that the crop may not be as 
winter hardy as it should be due to recent warmth. Winter time rainfall in 
Spain at this time will help to ease dryness concerns after early season 
drought. Italy continues to benefit from more favorable rains at this time as 
well. 
   Episodes of hot to very hot temperatures in eastern Australia increases 
stress to sorghum at times. 
   Mostly favorable conditions for the harvest of Kharif Sorghum in India at 
this time. Dry and hot weather increases stress on the Rabi crop but this crop 
relies mostly in irrigation. 
 
WORLD CORN PROSPECTS 
 
    Limited rainfall and near to above normal temperatures in central Argentina 
decreases soil moisture and increases stress on developing corn and soybeans, 
especially pollinating corn at this time. This situation bears watching. 
    Episodes of above normal temperatures and below normal rainfall increases 
the risk to maize in South Africa. Episodes of hot temperatures when the crop 
is pollinating will reduce yield prospects. The crop is further along in 
eastern areas at this time. This week we may see some increase in shower 
activity and more seasonal temperatures but this is somewhat uncertain. 
    Moderate to heavy snow in the northwest Midwest will impact transportation. 
There is no significant cold weather indicated during the next 7-10 days.
