WORLD WHEAT PROSPECTS
Favorable soil moisture for developing winter wheat in the southern plains.
Dry weather at this time favors the remaining planting.
Episodes of cold weather and wet/snowy conditions delayed harvest effort
for spring wheat across the Canadian Prairies. However, drier weather more
recently allowed many areas to advance towards completion...although some
spring wheat remains to be harvested.
Mostly favorable weather for establishment of winter wheat in Ukraine, west
and south Russia at this time. The region had mostly dry weather and above to
well above normal temperatures during October 14 to 20. Rain developed across
most of the area during the past week. Improving conditions for development.
Recent showers and a variable temperature pattern will favor filling winter
wheat in western and southeast Australia. These areas are turning drier again.
Drought has impacted winter wheat prospects in northern New South Wales and
southern Queensland during this season. Rain in these areas has recently lead
to delays in the harvest of wheat.
Increasing rain activity and cooler temperatures will help improve
conditions for winter wheat in Europe. However, some areas are still in need of
rain to recharge soil moisture.
