Ukraine to see 20.23 million tonnes of wheat harvest
 

 

UkrAgroConsult has cut down its estimates for Ukraine's wheat harvest by 6.6% to 20.23 million tonnes, said Olena Loshkaryova, an analyst with the Kiev-based agriculture researcher.

 

The wheat yield estimate was reduced to 3.08 tonnes per hectare (2.47 acres) from 3.21 tonnes, the analyst added.

 

UkrAgroConsult reduced its total grain-harvest forecast on April 4 to 52.4 million tonnes from 53 million tonnes due to late sowing of spring crops.
