Ukraine Winter rape crops mostly in good condition.

In Ukraine, the beginning of November featured mostly warm weather with rain. Over the ten days, air temperatures peaked at +9-14°С, even at 17°С in Kherson region. Winter rape of optimum and late planting dates is at the stage of rosettes. Early- and ultra-early-sown winter rape hybrids of the intensive type are flowering. The general crop condition is mostly good. Precipitation in October and early November considerably increased moisture content in the topsoil and improved the condition of winter crops.
