According to the actual observations of weather conditions, which were held at the meteorological station Uman, by mathematical processing of data and its analysis on the basis of long-term values (avarage for 30 years – from 1961 till 1990), agrometeorological characteristics of 2013 – 2014 agricultural year was presented.
A characteristic feature of this year was the increased temperature background, scarcity of rainfall in summer and air-soil drought, which began in June and continued until the end of summer.
The average atmospheric temperature of the agricultural year amounted 9,7°C, it was by 2,3°C higher than the long-term average. In the cold season (December – March) sum excess was 11,8°C, and for the warm season (April – September) 8,9°C.
The total rainfall for the year – 566,8 mm, it is on 10.5% less than normal. Therefore, the long-term summer rainfall deficit was a limiting factor for plants growth and development.
