In the fields around Sombor, winter crops look good, and with snowfall, the potential for good yields increases.
The state gives abandoned plots to farmers: Price 0 dinars!
Farmers sowed wheat a little later this fall. They waited for the rain, and previous years have shown that it is better to sow wheat not in early October but in later sowing dates.
– The wheat sprouted in a week. She has had ideal conditions ever since. Not too much precipitation, but fog and a little rain was just enough for optimal moisture in the sowing layer. At the end of November and the beginning of December, we had slightly lower temperatures, which helped the wheat not to overgrow, that is, not to get too big in the winter – says Davor Vuković, a farmer from the Gradina farm.

Wheat is currently in the budding phase and has the potential for a good yield, but whether it will be so depends on the weather conditions in the coming months. It also looks good in winter malting barley.
– Classic plowing, October 23 sowing. And everything has been good so far, enough humidity and favorable temperatures. It bulged a little and too much and now the snow would come in handy – says Antun Paštrović, a farmer from Bezdanske salaši.
What winter crops need now is snow, which would improve the state of winter moisture.

– The accumulation of winter moisture has been insufficient for years, and farmers and we agronomists dream of half a meter of snow. Then we would have serious winter reserves of moisture that we have not had in the last few years – says agronomist Aleksandar Bošnjak, Agro Ravangrad Sombor.
At the end of January, it is recommended to start feeding wheat. It is recommended to first fertilize the crops from the first sowing dates.
– These are lush crops and the first nitrogen deficiencies are already showing in some fields. Top dressing should be done with fast-acting fertilizers such as ammonium nitrate – adds Bošnjak.
In the structure of wheat sowing, it has been occupying 15 to 20 percent of the area in the region of western Backa for a year now, which is significantly less than 15 years ago.
