Winter cereals remain weakly hardened

To date, this year has been characterised by overall positive thermal anomalies in central, eastern and south-eastern Europe. Colder-than-usual conditions were typical only in south-western regions and Northern Africa. Winter crops are generally in good shape and well developed in the EU due to the mild winter conditions, and our models suggest only local and limited frost-kill damages in Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Poland. However, the north-eastern regions of Ukraine and southern Russia appear to be considerably affected by frost kill. Weaker-than-usual hardening continues in western and central Europe, despite a slight improvement in this situation since mid-January. Winter crops have not or have only partially developed tolerance to low temperatures in most of western Europe, the Mediterranean region and the eastern Black Sea region.
