Cold weather delays spring planting...or does it?

UkrAgroConsult are lowering its harvest forecast due to winterkill, late spring sowings and a lack of combines to bring the harvest in.
May all be true and probably is but worth re-visiting the weather data to see how late this spring actually is.
The records up to today suggest soil temperatures are bang on average for the time of year. 
Soil temperature has been near to or above the long term average for most of March.
We like to bring you the detail behind the headline.
