The absence of productive rain over a long time caused faster ripening of early cereals in the southern and central regions, along with premature drying of those planted after non-fallow predecessors. As a result, kernels failed to get filled: they are shriveled with a low 1000-kernel weight (23-35 g).
As of today, winter wheat in the south is at the waxy ripeness stage. The plant height varies within 70-108 cm.
Almost all plantings of winter barley are at the stage of full ripeness of grain. Barley plants suffered from soil moisture shortages to a greater degree that entailed their premature drying on significant expanses. In addition, this resulted in underfilled, shriveled kernels and a consequent crop shortfall of up to 15%.
Agri-biological crop surveys show that corn crops of ultra-early and optimum planting dates are entering the generative stage and the period of maximum water consumption. Low air temperatures in April and May along with significant precipitation shortages throughout the corn growing season slowed down plant growth.
Corn after the best predecessors and in rain-fed areas is in fair condition. Where sown after worse predecessors and in areas that have received no rain for a long time, the state of corn is close to poor. (UkrAgroConsult/Business World Magazine)
