WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS/IMPACTS...

CHINA - Some rain this week beneficial for summer crops in western and southern North China Plain, but does slow winter crop harvest. Rain needed in rest of this area to prevent some worsening crop conditions, but amounts look light. Some increase in rain keeps growing conditions generally favorable in Manchuria. Recent rain, some heavy, and more rain in southern China keeps up soil moisture for crops, but slow fieldwork.

BRAZIL - Favorable weather for harvest in most areas in near future. Showers confined to far south.

FORMER SOVIET UNION - Increasing rain chances and some cooling this week into weekend beneficial for preventing some worsening of crop conditions in eastern Ukraine, Southern Region, western Kazakhstan and southern Volga Region. Rain slows some winter crop harvest. In rest of spring wheat areas growing conditions more favorable.

EUROPE - Current growing conditions for winter and spring crops generally favorable most of this area. Some parts of Spain still badly need rain, but amounts look light except in far north. --- CANADA - Recent rain and more in forecast improve growing conditions here. --- AUSTRALIA - Growing conditions favorable in western wheat areas. Rain needed in northern and central parts of eastern wheat areas, most amounts near term light. Better growing conditions southern parts of eastern wheat areas. No major delays in planting, except where soils may be too dry in some locations. Some greater amounts possible by 6-10 day. --- INDIA - Seasonal Monsoonal rainfall since June 1 has been below normal in much of India, but should increase over next week to 10 days, increasing soil moisture to allow planting in more areas. Amounts stay lighter in some northwestern growing areas.
