To date the condition of winter crops on the territory of the Republic of Bashkortostan is not alarming, said the President of the NRA of the Roots of Beidou, examining the data of space monitoring conducted by the specialists of the NSA. Specifying that at the moment a critical situation for meteorological indicators in the territory of the Republic is not observed.
According to Korney Bizhdov, in mid-December last year, almost the entire territory of Bashkortostan was formed snow cover height of 10 to 20 cm So that subsequent frosts, and the night air temperatures ranged from - 10 to - 20 °C, was not supposed to have a negative impact on the condition of winter crops, as by this time they were covered a sufficient layer of snow. However, in Ermekeevskogo, kuyurgazinskogo, Sterlibashevskogo, Meleuzovsky, Sterlitamaksky areas could be prerequisites for the freezing of winter crops with late sowing dates, as for this reason, culture could go into winter underdeveloped. For crops, sown at the optimum time, night frost under normal snow conditions, served as tempering for the normal overwintering, - says the President of the NSA.
In the first week of January in Bashkiria dropped heavy rainfall, due to which the height of snow cover increased significantly – up to 20-25 cm in the Central part and the South-East region. In the North and East the situation is even better - the height of snow cover is 35-45 cm, and in the North-West - up to 60-70 cm "Due to the abundance of snow, the plummeting sub-zero temperatures, from -20°C to -30°C, observed at the beginning, the end of the second and third decade of January, could not have a negative impact on the condition of winter crops, as crops in most parts of the region were under snow protection," stated the Roots of biggov.
However, by analyzing the data of space monitoring, the President of the NSA expressed concerns about the condition of winter crops in Meleuzovskiy, Ermekeevskogo and Tuimazinsky district. The fact that the height of the snow cover in this area are small relative to the rest of the square is 10-15 cm And the night temperature here dropped to -20 to -25°C, thus could suffer an underdeveloped culture of late sowing dates. However, if farmers comply with the terms of sowing, they have the current weather situation should not cause concern.
"Assessing the meteorological situation in Bashkortostan in January - beginning of February, I want to draw the attention of farmers to the fact that today's indicators of snow depth at times differ from the long-term average and, most importantly, from the same period last year. For individual regions - Fedorov, Ishimbai, Sterlitamak, stelibashevskuy Aurgazinskijj, Karmaskalinsky, Belebeevsky - a decrease in snow depth relative to last year 5-6 times, says the Roots of Beidou, noting that in the period of hibernation on the state of the crops, this factor should not be affected. But on the indices of cumulative precipitation that has already affected, and not for the better: today, a decrease in the indicator "cumulative precipitation" in 4-5 times regarding the long-term average and last year's values. In the next 10 days of significant precipitation in the territory of Bashkiria is not expected, night temperatures will fall to -20 to -25°C. Slight precipitation in the next decade may be in the South-East region is Khaibullinsky, Baimaksky, Abzelilovsky, Uchalinsky areas.
"In the absence of heavy snowfall before the end of winter might be a possible shortage of productive moisture in the soil, which will undoubtedly affect the condition of the crops at the beginning of the active growing season in the spring, says the Roots of biggov. - With the development of such a "scenario" to farmers now is the time to think about carrying out technological activities aimed at the optimum development of winter crops. We are talking about retention, fertilizing, overseeding".
All of these measures will require additional expenditures, and if the crop is insured, these costs are borne by the insurer. "However, according to the NSA, in 2017 in the Republic of Bashkortostan were not concluded contracts of agricultural insurance of winter crops. In General, according to the agriculture Ministry, at the end of 2017 is planned in the framework targets a 147.6 thousand hectares of crops were insured only 3.5 hectares," - said the Roots of biggov.
