Ukraine. Winter crops are dormant, with no dangerous events for their survival in sight
Abnormally cold weather with dangerous meteorological events (fog, strong wind, snowstorm, ice-covered ground) dominated on February 19-21. Snow cover in the fields has been gradually melting in recent days.
At the time when ground- and snow-surface temperature fell to -15…-23ºC, winter crops were protected with 10-25 cm of snow. Only in the south it was not high enough to protect the plants from severe frost.
The air temperature drop was of short duration, therefore even at cold nights the lowest soil temperature at the tillering-node depth of winter crops did not decrease below -10ºC, i.e. it stayed above the critical level.
Winter crops are dormant, with no dangerous events for their survival in sight, UkrAgroConsult reports.

– Precipitation (10-15 mm) in the form of rain and sleet is expected in the western regions, while the central ones will likely receive 5-10 mm, the north and east will get 2-5 mm, and the south will be dry at all;
