precipitation favoring eastern areas Tuesday. Dry weather Wednesday.

to above normal Monday-Tuesday, near to below normal Wednesday. 
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 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. Wheat is reported to be breaking dormancy over much of the west and 
south areas. Moisture for this crop should be adequate to surplus at this time. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe have been warmer again during the past week. 
Recent episodes of rain will provide favorable moisture for crops through most 
areas of Europe. Wheat in Spain ranges from reproductive growth to filling and 
has benefited from above normal winter and early spring rains. 
   An increase in rain activity through east-central China during March and 
early April will help improve soil moisture and irrigation in key winter wheat 
areas. Wheat is likely breaking dormancy to vegetative development due to 
recent warmth. 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. Wheat in western areas may be in of nearing filling stages. 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.
