About 85% of the area under winter crops are in a good and satisfactory condition, head of the agrometeorological department of the Hydrometeorological Center Tetiana Adamenko has reported.
“In general, the situation with winter crops is satisfactory, 85% of crops are alive and will give a good harvest,” she said.
According to Adamenko, there are sparse crops in Kyiv, Cherkasy and Zhytomyr regions due to late autumn sowing, but the situation there is not critical.
“There could be problems with winter barley in some regions. It is not a cold-resistant crop, so now in some parts of Cherkasy, Donetsk and Kherson regions 30% of the area under barley is in a sparse state,” she said. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
