Ukraine Grain production
The 2006 wheat production forecast provided in the PSD is based on the following assumptions: § 18% of the area planted with winter wheat in Ukraine in Fall 2006 (5.14 million hectares) was damaged (i.e. will require re-sowing with spring crops 2006). The extremely cold temperatures (below – 18° C) and the absence (or insignificance) of the protective snow cover on January 18-19, 2006 were the main factors behind the freeze damage estimates (occurred predominantly in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Sumy Oblast). § While producing the estimate of winter damage, FAS-Kiev assumed that 10% of the fields that were assessed as weak and 100% of non-sprouted fields will require resowing. According to crop condition reports conducted immediately prior to the January 18-19, 2006 frosts, approximately 1.5 million hectares of winter wheat were assessed as weak. For instance, crop assessment reports that had been conducted prior to the cold weather snap in January indicated that 33% of winter wheat in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast was in bad condition. Underdeveloped wheat plants (in 1-3 leave stage) are less resistant to low temperatures compared with fully tillered plants. Therefore, tests conducted by the Ukrainian Hydrometeorology Center Ukrhydrometcenter in Dnipropetrovks Oblast in February 2006 found that 31-50% of wheat plants died in 34% of tested samples. These fields will have to be re-sown. § Winter wheat yields in 2006 will likely be lower than average due to the thinning in remaining fields. § The area planted with spring wheat in 2006 will increase to 600,000 hectares in response to high winterkill. The State Statistics Committee of Ukraine published its final 2005 wheat production estimate in early March 2006. Official production statistics are provided in the Statistical Tables Section and contain the breakdown of spring and winter wheat areas, yields and production – information that was not previously available.
