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 (average for 30 years - from 1961 until
1990), agrometeorological characteristics of the 2014-2015 agricultural year were 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 to 9,3°C. It was 1,9°C higher than the long-term
average. In the cold season (December - March) sum excess was 11,5°C, and for the warm season (April - September)
The total rainfall for the year, 527,4 mm, was 16.7% less than normal. Therefore, the long-term summer rainfall deficit was
a limiting factor for plant growth and development.
