11 Apr 2018 5:05 am
Northern plains highlights... 
    Dry conditions. Temperatures much below normal. 
Northern Plains Forecast 
    Dry weather Tuesday. Light mixed precipitation Wednesday. Mixed 
precipitation favoring southern areas Thursday-Friday. Light to moderate 
amounts expected. Dry weather Saturday-Monday. Temperatures below normal 
through Friday, near to below normal Saturday, variable Sunday, near to above 
normal Monday. 
6-10 Day Outlook: Temperatures near to below normal. Precipitation below 
    Dry weather continues to stress winter wheat in much of the southern 
plains. Crop conditions are poor in many areas. 
    Recent warm temperatures and rain in Turkey will favor development of wheat 
running well ahead of normal due to the well above normal temperatures. Recent 
reports suggest wheat has entered the jointing stage and will benefit from 
showers this week and continued warm temperatures. 
    Wheat areas of Ukraine, west and south Russia have been warmer during the 
past week. Snow cover is diminishing as is normal for the season. Moisture for 
this crop should be adequate to surplus as this snow cover melts. Wheat remains 
dormant and somewhat behind normal development. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe have been warmer again during the past week. 
Recent episodes of rain will provide favorable moisture for crops in western 
and central Europe during the coming weeks. Wheat in Spain ranges from 
vegetative growth to reproductive growth and will benefit from above normal 
winter and early spring rains. 
   An increase in rain activity through east-central China during March will 
help improve soil moisture and irrigation in key winter wheat areas. Wheat is 
likely breaking dormancy due to recent warmth. The region turned colder late 
last week but should be warmer again during this week. Prospects remain good 
through southern areas. Northern locations could use more rain to supplement 
irrigation at this time. 
   Winter and early spring rainfall averaged above normal in Morocco, Algeria 
and Tunisia. The added moisture will favor jointing to reproductive winter 
wheat. Reports suggest that prospects for this crop remain good to excellent. 
   A few showers and cooler temperatures have developed in winter wheat areas 
of India since late last week. Showers at this time of year are neutral at best 
and may be unfavorable for the maturing crop.
