WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Some beneficial precipitation in central Kansas but not enough to end 
dryness concerns for the crop overall. Crop ratings are poor in many areas. 
Little precipitation is expected during the next 7 days. 
    Recent warm temperatures and rain in Turkey will favor development of wheat 
running well ahead of normal due to the well above normal temperatures. 
    Wheat areas of Ukraine, west and south Russia have turned colder again 
since the weekend. Snow cover is widespread and deep due to recent snow storms. 
Moisture for this crop should be adequate to surplus when this snow melts 
during the spring. 
    Winter wheat areas of Europe have turned colder again since the weekend. 
Recent episodes of rain will provide favorable moisture for crops in western 
and central Europe during the coming weeks. Wheat areas in Spain and Italy will 
benefit from above normal winter time precipitation at this time, mostly rain 
in Spain and snow and rain in Italy. 
   An increase in rain activity through east-central China during the late 
winter period will help improve soil moisture and irrigation in key winter 
wheat areas. Wheat may be breaking dormancy due to recent warmth. 
   Winter time rainfall through in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The added 
moisture will favor jointing to reproductive winter wheat. Colder temperatures 
this week will needed to be watched as this could impact flowering wheat. 
   Key winter wheat areas of Pakistan and India are dry and warm at this time, 
increasing stress to this crop.
