Drought affects several provinces in the country every day. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MADR) announced the official figures valid on this date, bringing the total drought-affected area to 160,670 hectares, according to information provided by 24 provinces.

Until yesterday, July 28, an area of ​​150,565 hectares was affected by drought, today, Friday – July 29, it has increased by more than 10,000 hectares.

Thus, to date, the provinces have notified: Arad, Bacau, Bihor, Bochani, Pratila, Buzau, Kalorachi, Constanta, Galati, Giorgio, Hunedoara, Ilumicha, Yash, Ilfov, Maramuresh, Nemat, Prahova, Satu Marij. . and Suceava, Teleorman, Tulcea, Timiş, Vaslui, and Vrancea.

Agrometeorologists warn that due to excessive heat and lack of water in the soil, there will be a sharp deterioration in the state of vegetation in non-irrigated crops.

According to the specialized forecasts of the National Meteorological Administration (ANM) for the period from July 28 to August 3, in the non-irrigated corn crop, the moisture content of the soil profile 0-100 will present especially low and low values ​​(moderate, strong and severe drought), In Dobrogia, Banat, Krisana and Maramures, in large agricultural areas of Moldova, Montania, Transylvania and Oltenia.

The soil moisture reserve will lie within satisfactory limits, locally in the north and southwest of Oltenia, the north, northwest and west of Montania, isolated in the south, southwest and east of Transylvania, north of Moldova.

“The maintenance of high air temperatures, associated with an acute lack of soil moisture, will determine the severe deterioration of the vegetation condition in non-irrigated non-irrigated crops (corn, sunflower), especially on agricultural surfaces in the southeast, south, east and western localities of the country. As a result, the phenomenon of wilting and twisting of leaves in the noon hours, drying of the leaf apparatus, and the effect of vegetative processes leading to their stagnation, will generalize in these areas. Thus, in areas where the wilting of plants is irreversible, agricultural areas at risk will be able to expand “, According to ANM forecasts.

It will be possible to complete the wheat harvest work in the entire farmland

Specialists say that the autumn wheat harvest can be completed in almost the entire agricultural area.

“For sunflowers, due to the unfavorable conditions from previous periods (dry soil, heat), the stage of waxy maturity will have to generalize, especially in the agricultural areas of the southern half of the country. In the rest of the regions flowering and head growth predominate (10-100%). The corn crop will go through a dahlia, flowering and silk appearance (50-100%) on most surfaces, and in early and early hybrids, milk maturity will be recorded (10-60%).In most specialty ponds, sugar beet will continue to elongate and thicken the axis hypocotyl (30-100%), potatoes, formation and growth of tubers. On surfaces affected by pedophytic drought, early drying of potatoes will be indicated, tubers have lower sizes. In fruit trees, fruit growth and sugar accumulation will be, as well as fruit ripening and harvesting, Are prevalent. The vine will go through stages of growth and development of berries. Locally in the vineyards of the southern half of the country, grain ripening can occur in early table varieties, “said agrometeorologists.

Warmer than usual weather in most parts of the country in the coming weeks

In general, climatic conditions will allow for the picking, transportation and storage of fruits and grains, as well as the maintenance of fields, fruit trees and vines.

During this period, the weather will be warmer than usual, and even hot, throughout the farmland.

The average daytime air temperature will be between 17-30°C across the country, and the values ​​are 1-5°C higher than the multi-year averages. The maximum air temperature will be between 23-37°C, in all farming areas, the minimum will be between 10-23°C, in most agricultural areas, and lower values ​​are possible in lowland areas.

We can see local precipitation, but also heavy rain, accompanied by electrical discharges and temporary intensification of winds, isolated by the appearance of a storm, as well as hail. In isolation, more water can be recorded from an agricultural point of view, ANM forecasts show.
