Ukraine has completed the vegetation of late crops. Agrometeorological conditions of the past decade was uneven and largely dependent on rainfall. In the extreme West and South of the country last rainfall of varying intensity, relative humidity increased, so the conditions were considered favourable for vegetation or satisfactory. Despite unusually high for this region the highest average and daytime temperatures, the vegetation continues.
