Wheat Gains as Freezing Weather in Europe May Curb Production - BusinessWeek

Will the cold in Europe and in Russia and Ukraine influence grain prices?

Temperatures reached minus 15 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit) in France’s Alsace and Lorraine regions yesterday, according to forecaster Meteo France. In northern Germany, where some areas lack snow cover, soil temperatures have dropped below minus 8 degrees Celsius, Deutscher Wetterdienst said. Cold weather in the so-called Black Sea region also has hurt crops.

Soil temperatures dropped to minus 20 degrees Celsius for more than two days in the Dnipropetrovsk region, where 44 percent of planted grain failed to emerge after an autumn drought, Adamenko said by telephone from Kiev.

Weather center predicts reseeding 50% of winter crops in Ukrain | Plant Pest Modeling | Scoop.it

NRCU - Ukrainian Radio: Weather center predicts reseeding 50% of winter crops. This is what Tetiana Adamenko, head of the agrometeorology department, reported.

More accurate assessment of the state of winter crops after hibernation will be made by the end of March. The expert reminded that this year record low temperatures were registered in some regions at a depth of the tillering node. About 20% of wheat have not risen and the cold will add at least 20-30%.

Agro-Meteorology. WOTR is partnered by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its Agro-Meterology efforts. The IMD guides WOTR in weather station installations, weather predictions as well as in providing agro advisories.

Automated Weather Stations were installed in villages. Localized Met-advisories and Agri-met advisories are in demand and they can be very much useful in giving timely information to farmers so that they can plan their agricultural activities accordingly.

WEATHER AND CLIMATE FORECASTS FOR AGRICULTURE

Weather plays an important role in agricultural production. It has a profound influence on crop growth, development and yields; on the incidence of pests and diseases; on water needs; and on fertilizer requirements.


For optimal productivity at a given location, crops and cropping practices must be such that while their cardinal phased weather requirements match the temporal march of the relevant weather element(s), endemic periods of pests, diseases and hazardous weather are avoided. In such strategic planning of crops and cropping practices, short-period climatic data, both routine and processed (such as initial and
conditional probabilities), have a vital role to play.
