This year, the area under this crop increased by 7,3 thousand hectares to 47,5 thousand hectares, or 8,2%.

Agrarians in Vinnytsia region accelerate the sowing of late cereals and industrial crops due to the drought.

«A sharp rise in temperature forecast in a few days will inevitably lead to a rapid loss of moisture by the sowing layer of soil, and therefore sowing must be accelerated regardless of the current temperature regime», — Tkachuk said.

According to him, as of Wednesday, April 22, nearly 600 thousand hectares of late spring and industrial crops were sown in the region.
