Ministry sees frost-killing risks for winter crops on lack of snow

MOSCOW, Nov 28 (PRIME) Ц Winter grains may be killed with frost in some Russian regions because of the absence of snow, although there is no such data so far, Roman Nekrasov, director of the Agriculture MinistryТs department for crop growing, mechanization, chemization, and plant protection, said on Thursday.

УWe note the impact of unfavorable weather conditions in some regions. In particular, not all regions had enough water during the sprout period, but we will monitor the situation,Ф he said at a meeting of the Federation Council, the parliamentТs upper house.

УSome territories have no snow, which means there is the risk of frost-killing, harm to the crops from low temperatures. But the ministry currently has no provable data on how much crops was destroyed and where.Ф

As of Thursday, winter crops were sown on 18.2 million hectares, or at 104% of the area planned for sowing, up from 17.6 million hectares as of the same date of 2018.
