Weather contributes to the world seed campaign
the Cool beginning of spring in the Northern hemisphere has slightly delayed the beginning of the sowing that caused a rise in grain prices. However, may weather in major producing countries has improved, and concern for the fate of the future harvest fell.
Warm weather in the U.S. accelerated the pace of planting, and periodic precipitation increase the moisture reserves and contribute to sprouting.
In the Midwest, the pace of sowing has reached the annual average in the East – ahead of the norm in the West – are rapidly increasing.
