Lowering of air temperatures to optimal values and improved soil moisture stocks were beneficial for vegetation of all late spring crops. Better yields can be expected in later sown plants of corn due to cease of leaves withering and yellowing during the daytime. August rains were beneficial for moisture accumulation before the upcoming winter crop sowing.
In Western and Northern parts 1-m soil layer has good and satisfactory moisture stocks (80-120 mm), which is enough for vegetation’s completion. In all the regions with satisfactory content of soil moisture, grain filling is going successfully and high corn yields are being formed. (UkrAgroConsult/Business World Magazine)
