Western FSU Wheat Weather - Nov 17

17 Nov 2017 6:05 am
West and South Russia (Central Region, Black Soils region, Volga valley, 
Southern Russia) 
Highlights: Mostly dry during the past 24 hours. Temperatures averaged above 
 Days 1-3: Mostly dry or with only a little light precipitation during this 
period. Temperatures average near to above normal. 
 Days 4-5: Scattered light precipitation, favoring western areas, during this 
period. Temperatures near to above normal. 
Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus 
Highlights: Mostly dry during the past 24 hours. Temperatures near to above 
 Days 1-3: Mostly dry today and Friday. Dry or with only a little light 
precipitation during Saturday. Temperatures near to above normal today and 
Friday, near to below normal west and above normal east Saturday. 
 Days 4-5: Dry or with only a little light precipitation favoring south and 
east areas during this period. Temperatures turn somewhat colder. 
 Outlook: Longer range outlooks suggest a snow storm is possible in Crimea, 
South and east Ukraine and possible the eastern part central Ukraine during 
Tuesday into Wednesday. 
    Mostly favorable conditions for pre-winter development of the wheat crop in 
the southern plains. 
    Favorable conditions for filling and maturing wheat in central Argentina. 
    Recent rainfall through key winter wheat areas of Turkey will help improve 
conditions for establishment of this crop, following earlier drought conditions 
in the area. Additional rain and snow is expected later this weekend and early 
next week. 
    Mostly favorable conditions, at this time, for slow development of winter 
wheat in southern Ukraine and south Russia. Recent rainfall has helped recharge 
soil moisture in key growing areas, after late summer dryness concerns and 
heat. Wheat is likely entering dormancy from northern Ukraine northward. 
    Mainly favorable conditions for planting winter wheat and development 
through western Europe at this time. Recent rains have slowed planting progress 
in the east while greatly improving soil moisture following drier and hotter 
late summer weather. Dryness and drought has been of increasing concern in 
Spain and in Italy. Spain has had showers and cooler weather during the past 
week but more rain is needed to end the drought. Italy has had heavy rains 
which should end any further concerns over dryness issues. 
    Drier, warm to sometimes hot weather favors maturing winter wheat and the 
harvest in Western Australia. Recent showers in northern New South Wales and 
southern Queensland may delay the harvest for a time. Rain also fell in South 
Australia during the week, possibly aiding any late filling wheat but more 
likely coming too late for wheat and being unfavorable for the maturing crop. 
   Mostly favorable moisture and temperatures for development of recently 
planted winter wheat through the North China Plain. 
   Dryness and drought is of increasing concern for winter wheat areas of 
Morocco in northwest Africa.
