WORLD GRAIN PROSPECTS 
 
    Mostly favorable conditions, at this time, for slow development of winter 
grains in southern Ukraine and south Russia. Recent rainfall has helped 
recharge soil moisture in key growing areas, after late summer dryness concerns 
and heat. Winter grains are entering dormancy from northern Ukraine northward. 
    Mainly favorable conditions for planting winter grain and development 
through western Europe at this time. Recent rains have slowed planting progress 
in the east while improving soil moisture following drier and hotter late 
summer weather. Dryness and drought has been of concern in Spain and of some 
concern through Italy. Spain had showers early last week but more rain will be 
needed to end the drought.  Italy had heavy rainfall during the week which 
should end any further concerns at this time. 
   Dryness in east-central Australia delayed the early planting effort for 
sorghum. Rainfall during October provided needed soil moisture and irrigation 
through much of the region but especially through the south Queensland areas. 
Improving prospects for planting and early development. 
   Late season rainfall through India will have favored development of the 
Kharif sorghum crop, especially in previously dry areas in and near 
Maharashtra. Late season rainfall also improved irrigation and soil moisture 
supplies in winter sorghum areas. Recent rains in the far south may be somewhat 
unfavorable for the harvest of summer crops and the planting of winter 
varieties. 
 
WORLD CORN PROSPECTS 
 
    Disruptions to the remaining corn harvest in the Midwest however some 
progress is being made. Indiana and Ohio are likely experiencing the most 
delays. 
    Mostly favorable weather for the remaining corn harvest in the northern 
Plains. 
    Generally favorable conditions for planting and developing corn in central 
Argentina. 
    Recent rainfall in eastern Europe may mean delays to the final harvest 
effort for corn. No significant concerns for the harvest in France at this 
time. 
   No significant concerns for final harvest effort for corn in China at this 
time. 
   Scattered showers and thundershowers and much cooler temperatures will help 
improve conditions for early development of maize in South Africa. Rainfall 
will help improve soil moisture for the ongoing planting effort but some 
western areas could use more rain after recent hot temperatures.
