Sowing campaign in Ukraine postponed due to cold weather, farmers have time to prepare - Minister Leschenko.

Sowing season in Ukraine due to cold weather is shifted to the end of March - beginning of April, this will allow farmers to better prepare for going into the field and accumulate additional resources, however, despite the favorable temporary backlash, sowing season 2022 will be the most difficult in history of Ukraine due to the military invasion of the Russian Federation.

The Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food Roman Leschenko wrote about the shift in the sowing season to the end of March - the first decade of April on his Telegram channel on Wednesday, citing the latest data from the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center.

"Temperature marks are still negative at night, and in the north and east they reach -12-10°C. Why is this good news? The weather gives us the opportunity to accumulate resources, organize work and at the same time meet the optimal agrometeorological deadlines. Our task is to make the most of this additional time, attract internal and external assistance and optimally prepare for going into the field," the minister said.

He said that winter crops are still in a state of winter dormancy, so frosts, despite the relatively warm February, should not harm them.

"The amount of moisture in the top layer of soil leaves much to be desired and, most likely, it is not worth waiting until March 20. Well, let this be our biggest problem," Leschenko said.

The Minister recalled that the upcoming sowing campaign-2022 could become the most difficult and important in the time of independent Ukraine. Its significance is no longer measured by the categories of "yield" and "price", while it is about the survival of the country.
