Russia: Agrometeorological overview for the second decade of May 2021
On the farms, spring sowing operations continued mainly under favorable conditions. Sowing of spring grain and fodder crops was carried out, in the southern regions of late spring grain and row crops. In the northern half of the territory, where waterlogged soil was observed in the first ten days of May, hot and mostly dry weather accelerated drying of the topsoil and agrometeorological conditions for spring sowing improved. In the extreme western and south-western regions of the territory, during 4-6 days of a decade, the conditions for sowing were mostly unfavorable due to the passing rains (15-30 mm per decade), on days without precipitation – satisfactory. In most areas of the Volga Federal District, due to dry and hot weather, the unproductive consumption of moisture significantly increased, the topsoil was in places in a hard-plastic state, which worsened the sowing conditions and emergence of spring crops. In the rest of the regions, agrometeorological conditions for the emergence of seedlings, growth and development of crops were generally good. In the fields sown in early May, there were shoots of sugar beets, sunflowers and maize. In winter grain crops, the stem growth continued (the phase “the appearance of the lower stem node above the soil surface” was noted). However, the rains replenished the moisture reserves in the soil, which improved the conditions for the growth and development of crops. Seedlings of sugar beets, sunflowers and maize have appeared on most of the fields; leaf formation is observed in the fields of early sowing. Earning began in winter grain crops, and stem growth continued in some of the fields. Early spring crops bush in the northern regions, and stem growth in the southern regions. Agrometeorological conditions for the growth and development of crops were generally good and satisfactory. The moisture supply of crops was mostly good, in places satisfactory, in the Republic of Crimea, in some fields in the southern and central regions of the Rostov region.
