In many countries of the region winter wheat is cultivated in irrigated conditions. Thus, remote sensing data are expected to provide more reliable information about crop status than analysis of meteorological parameters. Analysis of NDVI confirms that vegetation status at the end of the season 2007/2008 within the winter wheat zones was worse than normal in many countries (red color is a dominant at the map
below). The situation was close to normal in Caucasus countries and slightly better than normal in southern and central Afghanistan (where winter crop is scarce).
