Overview of agrometeorological situation of January 21, 2021
Agrometeorological conditions for winter crops are controversial. The snow cover protected the crops from the low temperatures observed in the second decade of January. The snow cover settled practically on the thawed soil and, despite the low air temperatures, held back freezing.
Preservation of snow cover on weakly frozen soil in the future will lead to an increased consumption of nutrients by plants, which will lead to a weakening of winter crops. In the near future, under the influence of the expected thaw weather, it will melt and thicken.
