WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS 
 
    Mostly adequate soil moisture for the upcoming winter wheat planting season 
in the southern plains at this time. 
    Major losses to spring wheat due to hot/dry weather in July in the 
Prairies. Mostly favorable weather for the harvest. 
    The spring wheat harvest is nearing completion in the northern Plains. 
    Favorable conditions for developing wheat in central Argentina. 
    Favorable moisture conditions for late filling spring wheat in northern 
Kazakhstan and central Russia. Recent hot, dry weather favored the maturing 
crop. 
    Beneficial rain for vegetative to reproductive wheat in West and vegetative 
wheat in southeast Australia during August. However, more rain would still 
benefit these crop areas after very dry weather earlier in the season. Dryness 
is of increasing concern for wheat grown in northern NSW and southern 
Queensland. Wheat in reproductive growth stages is likely being hurt at this 
time. Rain is needed to stabilize crop prospects for the area.
