Russia’s harvest started late in 2020 compared to 2019, paired with lower yields than expected. Dry conditions due to less precipitation in the south are mainly the driver. Conditions get better in the north but are likewise in the east.

Monitoring the precipitation and the soil moisture in the area clearly confirm these messages. For the Stavropol region for example, these circumstances could be seen already in mid of June. Additionally, modelled yield values for the region are down to almost -20% for 2020.
