Former Soviet Union Corn Weather - Jun 27

27 Jun 2017 5:10 am
West and South Russia (Central Region, Black Soils region, Volga valley, 
Southern Russia) 
Highlights: Light showers with locally heavier favoring north and central areas 
Monday or Monday night. Temperatures averaged near to above normal. 
 Days 1-3: A few showers favoring east and south areas during Tuesday or 
Wednesday. Temperatures average should be hotter today, cooler again during 
 Days 4-5: Mostly dry Thursday. Dry or with only a few light showers northwest 
areas during Friday. Temperatures may be somewhat cooler Thursday, warmer again 
Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus 
Highlights: Dry or with only a few light showers during the past 24 hours. 
Temperatures near to below normal northwest and above normal elsewhere in the 
region yesterday. 
 Days 1-3: Scattered to widely scattered light showers with isolated heavier 
during this period. Temperatures average near to above normal today, near 
normal Wednesday. 
 Days 4-5: Scattered to widely scattered showers and somewhat cooler in the 
west. Mainly dry and somewhat hotter in the east. 
    Winter grain in west and southeast Europe ranges from maturing to harvest 
at this time and is reported to be in fair to good condition. Hot, dry weather 
favors the mature crop and harvesting. Showers in northeast Europe wheat areas 
will favor reproductive to filling winter grain and early planted spring grain. 
    Winter grain in Ukraine, west and south Russia ranges from reproductive 
growth to filling at this time. Dryness is of increasing concern in 
north-central Ukraine due to well below normal rainfall during the past 90 
days. Winter grain elsewhere in Ukraine as well as in west and south Russia is 
in much better condition at this time. 
   Showers and warm temperatures favor emergence and early growth of spring 
grain from the Urals region eastward through northern Kazakh and southern 
Siberia. However, recent hot temperatures begin to diminish soil moisture 
somewhat through central and east areas. 
   Conditions will mostly favor planting and early growth of spring grains 
through Belarus and Ukraine at this time. Recent rains in south Russia will 
provide favorable soil moisture for early needs of spring grains but may have 
slowed field work. Concerns continue in north-central Ukraine due long term (90 
days) below normal rainfall levels, despite recent showers in the area. 
   Soil moisture is reported to be in good supply at this time for filling to 
maturing winter grains in Turkey. Crop condition improved due to favorable 
Spring rainfall. 
    Generally favorable conditions for developing corn in the Midwest with 
adequate moisture and no significant hot weather expected during the next 7 
    More rain would benefit developing corn in the northern Plains. Some 
beneficial rainfall is possible this week. The lack of any hot weather will 
limit crop stress. 
    Favorable weather for pollinating and filling corn in the Delta states. 
    Favorable weather for maturing and harvesting corn in central Brazil. 
    Harvest disruptions develop in central Argentina the next few days. 
    Hot temperatures through corn areas of southwest and central France during 
this past week will have increased the risk to this crop, especially any early 
reproductive corn. Showers and cooler temperatures during the coming week will 
be more favorable. A more favorable weather pattern for corn areas of eastern 
Europe at this time. Dryness is of increasing concern for corn in north Italy 
and of much concern in Spain. 
    Mostly adequate soil moisture for corn areas of southern and eastern 
Ukraine and south Russia at this time...favoring emerging and developing corn. 
Dryness is of increasing concern in north-central Ukraine. Showers have been 
reported in the area but more rain is needed. 
    Weekend showers in key growing areas of northeast China will favor 
development of recently planted corn but more rain is needed. The area looks to 
be hot and dry early this week but may see increasing showers again late in the 
   Central China growing areas continue to experience episodes of hot weather 
but with periods of scattered showers as well.
