At the beginning of last week weather conditions were favorable for completion of winter wheat harvesting in the South and South East. Crops condition is mainly good and stage of development is full ripeness.
In the reporting period conditions were also favorable for growth and development of spring grain crops and grain filling, though short-term precipitations in Akmola and South-Kazakh region influenced the start of harvesting works.
Meteorological conditions in August led to decrease in the spread of grain crop diseases. Spring grain crops are at milk – wax ripeness stages and their condition is mainly excellent and good and in some places satisfactory. Farmers of all regions started harvesting.
