WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Favorable conditions for pre winter development of winter wheat in most 
areas of the southern Plains although it is turning drier in Oklahoma and west 
Texas. 
    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 will during this week will further 
improve soil moisture for this crop. 
    Mostly favorable conditions, at this time for winter wheat in 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 in most areas at this time. 
    Mainly favorable conditions for winter wheat development through western 
Europe at this time. Recent rains slowed planting progress in the east while 
greatly improving soil moisture following drier and hotter late summer weather. 
Dryness and drought had been of concern in Spain and in Italy. Spain has had 
showers and cooler weather recently 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 past 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 for development of recently planted winter wheat 
through the North China Plain. Colder temperatures may slow development 
somewhat at this time. 
   Dryness and drought is of increasing concern for winter wheat areas of 
Morocco in northwest Africa. 
   Dry weather will favor planting progress for winter wheat in north India and 
Pakistan at this time. These crops reply mostly on irrigation and supplemental 
moisture during the January and February time from as cold fronts enter from 
the north.
