Romania. Rains promote the formation of high corn and sunflower yields 30 July, 2020 at 18:07

Weather conditions. Air temperatures in Romania were within long-term normal levels (+17..+29°C), locally 2..4°C above normal in the southeast. 

On July 22-23, air temperatures in the regions bordering on Bulgaria reached +34..+35°С. However, this rise was of short duration. 

Moisture supply. Precipitation occurred all over the country (25-65 mm). Precipitation rates in the central regions locally reached 80-100 mm, or as much as normally receive for several months.  

Soil moisture content is adequate for growing spring crops, except for small areas in the southeast. Rain hampers the completion of winter wheat harvest, but promotes the formation of high corn and sunflower yields, UkrAgroConsult reports.
