Cold weather with rain and snow in the Urals, in Siberia and Krasnoyarsk region has significantly delayed the sowing campaign.
In Kazakhstan in may, has developed a satisfactory development of crops weather conditions. Across the country have been above normal precipitation, which improved water supplies, but slowed planting.
In Moldova is the result of a may drought and heat the grain harvest in 2018, could be reduced by 10%.
