In Ukraine, prolonged rainfall against the background of low temperatures can significantly worsen the quality of wheat of the new harvest.
The total volume will increase due to excessive reserves of soil moisture. Still, rains will continue for another week, which will negatively affect the crops of winter barley and wheat, especially in the country’s south. Protein content will be less, and now it is hard to predict the shares of milling wheat and feed wheat.
The weather conditions are quite favourable for other crops, but prolonged rains prevent farmers from the timely treatment of crops from weeds and diseases. Grain diseases can be a significant obstruction for Ukrainian export this year.
