Xinjiang crop generally in good condition in early July
2016-07-28

Ministry of Agriculture reported that during July 1-10, of the 99.8% monitored cotton field, 68.4% were in a comparable condition with a year ago. 17.4% performed better than last year and 14.2% were in a poorer condition. New crop in good condition is mostly located in north Xinjiang and those in poorer condition were mostly located in the west part of Tarim Basin in south Xinjiang and some other regional areas. 

  

Temperature in north Xinjiang was normal or slightly lower than average, with notable precipitation, good soil condition and favorable sunshine/temperature that bodes well for crop development. South Xinjiang experienced a higher-than-normal temperature with below average rainfall, which led to poorer crop condition.
