Ukraine grain production to total 46-47 million tonnes


In 2010, the general production of grains in Ukraine will total to approximately 46-47 million tonnes, said Nikolay Prysiaghniuk, the Minister of Agrarian Policy.


N. Prysiaghniuk said that the sowing areas of winter and spring crops totalled nearly 15 million hectares.


According to him, in the context of the earning possibility for grain producers, high carry-over stocks of grains of the harvest last year is the only critical issue for the agricultural industry of Ukraine, which will impact the price situation on the grain market in 2010.
