RAINS IMPROVE CONDITION – for Aug. 30, 2010

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Rains in Russia have improved conditions for winter grain sowing in some of drought-hit European regions but not in some fertile soil parts, the Hydrometcentre weather forecasting service said Aug. 20. “Conditions for harvesting and winter grain sowing will be generally satisfactory in most of the non-black earth zone (until the end of August),” it said on its website. But conditions for winter sowing in the Central Black Soil region, in the centre and the south of European Russia will be worse than average because of water deficit, the service said.
