Latest USDA weather update for western FSU

Dormant winter wheat remained insulated by a moderate to deep snowpack over much of the region.

Winter crop areas from central Ukraine into central Russia remained covered by 5 to 60 cm of snow.

However, southern portions of Russia’s Southern District (Krasnodar Krai) remained devoid of snow cover, though minimum temperatures (-10 to -5°C) posed no threat to dormant winter wheat.
