Hot weather adversely affects crop
Abnormally high temperatures, established in the Northern hemisphere, increases the risks for the harvest.
after Analyzing the air temperature of the last two months, the world meteorological organization (WMO) announced that the Earth is going through "an extremely warm year," a period of abnormally hot weather came too soon.
"In some regions of Europe, Middle East, USA and the North African heat came in may and June, broke several records," reports the wom – "the Trend of recent months show that monthly average temperatures were among the highest since records began in 1880".
In China, which is the world's largest producer of grain, through the arid and hot weather postponed the sowing and slowed development of the crop. Particularly affected province of Liaoning, where the amount of precipitation was 40-60% below normal and soil moisture was the lowest in five years.
In Ukraine, such extreme conditions of moisture deficit in the soil last recorded over 40 years ago. This year, there is a lack of soil moisture in the Central and Northern regions of the country, which prevents the vegetation, for which the yield will be less than expected. A more accurate estimate of the gross collection will be available after the beginning of harvest of winter and spring crops.
