USDA's Joint Ag Weather Facility has provided the following weekly weather/crop highlights:

  • EUROPE: Locally Heavy Rain Boosts Crop Prospects

    - Widespread, locally heavy rain boosts prospects for small grains and oilseeds in England, France, Italy, and western Germany. However, the wet weather is slowing summer crop planting.

    - Warm, showery weather improves soil moisture for winter wheat and rapeseed in Poland.

  • NORTHWESTERN AFRICA: Additional Showers In Morocco

    - Additional showers benefit immature winter grains in northern Morocco.

    - Mostly sunny skies in Algeria and Tunisia favor filling winter wheat and barley.

  • MIDDLE EAST: Late-Week Showers Benefit Turkish Grains

    - Late-week showers and thunderstorms favor winter wheat and barley in Turkey.

    - Warm, dry weather promotes winter crop maturation across the eastern Mediterranean.

  • FSU: Western Warmth And Dryness Contrast With Beneficial Rain In The East

    - Unseasonably warm, dry weather accelerates winter crop development across Belarus, Ukraine, and western Russia.

    - In Kazakhstan and central Russia, beneficial rain boosts soil moisture for spring wheat planting.

    - Showers in southern Kazakhstan slow cotton planting.

  • SOUTH ASIA: Pre-Monsoon Rains Diminish

    - Seasonally hot weather returns to most of India, as pre-monsoon showers diminish.

  • EAST ASIA: Drier Weather For Wheat

    - Sunny weather on the North China Plain, following last week’s rainfall, aids flowering winter wheat.
