WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Soil moisture is decreasing in the southern plains of the US, especially in 
western areas. However wheat crop conditions remain nearly unchanged from a 
month ago due to limited crop moisture needs at this time of the year. This 
situation bears watching. 
    Favorable soil moisture for the winter wheat crop in the southeast Midwest 
and Delta states. 
    Winter wheat in west and central Europe is reported to be in fair to good 
condition at this time. Reports suggest that winter wheat has broken dormancy 
in western Europe about a month ahead of normal. Early winter cold may 
contribute to above normal winterkill in parts of east Europe but this will 
probably not be fully known until the spring. Generous rains through key 
growing areas of France during the first 10 days of March should ease concerns 
over winter dryness. 
    Winter wheat in Ukraine, west and south Russia is reported to be in good 
condition at this time. Temperatures have recently warmed considerably leading 
to a rapid snow melt and even some greening of wheat in the southern areas. 
   Mostly favorable conditions for dormant winter wheat through east-central 
China at this time. Snow and rain has occurred in the region recently. This 
will provide soil moisture for the crop as it breaks dormancy during the 
spring. 
   Wheat in Pakistan and north India benefited from significant rain and cool 
temperatures late in January, especially any winter wheat that was reproductive 
at the time. Additional beneficial rainfall has been reported since late last 
week. 
   Periodic showers through winter wheat areas of northwest Africa has supplied 
favorable moisture for most of the key growing belt. Wheat is vegetative to 
heading at this time. Prospects are good to excellent, especially in Morocco. 
Recent hotter weather is not overly concerning as it should turn cooler again 
early in the week.
