Insights

1 A warm winter helped to limit winter losses, supporting a rapid and favorable spring growth recovery.

2 The season was relatively dry in Volga and in the south. In this area, Geosys observed fair precipitation until the end of May.

3 A dry pattern and high temperatures in June led to an acceleration of the senescence at the end of the cycle. Because this event took place during the second part of grain filling, it restrained yields.

4 Drought in the west at the start of the Spring cycle reduced the crops vigor and yield potential.

5 A summer drought in the east disturbed the grain filling stage and yield elaboration.
