Belarus. Weather conditions maintained a fast pace of fieldwork and spring planting 19 April, 2019 at 12:04

The weather made it possible to maintain a fast pace of fieldwork and spring planting. The 10-cm topsoil layer was moderately wet. The average soil temperature at a 10-cm depth ranged from +4 +6°С in the northwest to +10 +12°С in the south and southeast of the country. Precipitation shortages resulted in a drop in topsoil moisture supply. The latter was below the long-term average for the beginning of the growing season. Winter grains are in good condition, reports UkrAgroConsult.
