Former Soviet Union Corn Weather - Jun 8

8 Jun 2017 5:10 am
 
West and South Russia (Central Region, Black Soils region, Volga valley, 
Southern Russia) 
 
Highlights: Mostly dry during the past 24 hours. Temperatures averaged near to 
above normal. 
 
Forecast 
 Days 1-3: Scattered showers through the southern portion of Southern Russia 
today, drier elsewhere in the region today. Scattered showers favoring southern 
and western areas during Thursday into Friday. Temperatures turn cooler today 
and Thursday, somewhat warmer again during Friday. 
 
 Days 4-6: Scattered showers favoring southern and eastern areas Saturday. 
Drier Sunday. Dry Monday. Temperatures turn cooler again during this period. 
 
Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus 
 
Highlights: Mostly dry or with only a few light showers during the past 24 
hours. Temperatures averaged near to above normal northwest, above normal 
elsewhere in the region, yesterday. 
 
Forecast: 
 Days 1-3: Moderate to locally heavy showers and thundershowers are possible in 
southwest and central Ukraine and Moldova today or during Thursday. Scattered 
light showers with locally heavier elsewhere in west and central areas during 
this time. Showers east and fair elsewhere in the region Friday. Temperatures 
average above normal today, cooler in the west and continued above normal 
elsewhere in the region Thursday, somewhat cooler in central areas Friday and 
continued warm in the east Friday. 
 
 Days 4-6: Light showers with locally heavier favoring west and south Ukraine 
and Moldova during Saturday into Sunday. Drier again Monday. Temperatures vary 
somewhat during this period. 
 
WORLD GRAIN PROSPECTS 
    Winter grain in west and central Europe is reported to be in fair to good 
condition at this time. Reports suggest that winter grain is in filling to 
maturing growth stages in Europe. West Europe wheat areas are under a variable 
temperature pattern at this time. Grain in east Europe is reported to be in 
good to excellent condition at this time. 
    Recent rainfall through Ukraine will help maintain or improve prospects for 
winter grain in reproductive to filling growth stages at this time. Warmer 
weather will, at times, favor development. However, cooler conditions are 
likely at times as well. Dryness remains of some concern in north-central 
Ukraine. 
   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 reproductive 
to filling winter grains in Turkey. Crop condition is improving due to 
favorable weather recently. 
 
WORLD CORN PROSPECTS 
 
    Warmer weather and less rain in the Midwest improves conditions for 
developing corn. Most planting is complete. 
    More rain is needed for developing corn in the northern Plains. 
    Favorable weather for developing and pollinating corn in the Delta states. 
    Favorable weather for maturing and harvesting corn in central Brazil. 
    Favorable harvest weather in central Argentina. 
    A variable temperature pattern over the corn areas of Europe with periodic 
scattered showers. Soil moisture is favorable in many areas. No significant 
concerns for the corn crop at this time. 
    Mostly adequate soil moisture for corn areas of southern and eastern 
Ukraine and south Russia at this time...favoring emerging and developing corn. 
Dryness remains of some concern in north-central Ukraine, despite rains earlier 
in May. 
    Corn planting in China would typically begin during May. Key growing areas 
of China's northeast have recently received beneficial rainfall. This included 
previously dry western growing areas. However, more rain will be needed to 
support favorable early development of corn. The region will see variable 
temperatures with little rainfall during this week. 
   Central China growing areas have had some fairly hot conditions at the end 
of May and very early in June. However, an active weather pattern has returned 
to the region since late last week. This will improve conditions for early 
development of corn in the area.
