Overview of agrometeorological situation of September 2, 2022
Over the past three weeks, precipitation in most areas has not exceeded 1-6 mm, in some areas there was practically no rain, which led to a significant decrease in soil moisture reserves. According to the results of the instrumental determination of humidity, the areas with satisfactory and low moisture reserves have significantly increased. The abundance of moisture in a half-meter layer is preserved on heavy soils only in the north-western part of the Vitebsk region, in some eastern and central regions of the republic.
In the near future, due to the lack of precipitation, there will be a lack of soil moisture, which will complicate the conditions for the formation of the harvest of late vegetables, the growth of root crops, the development of winter rapeseed and sowing of winter cereals.
