Ukraine grain yield forecast at 59 million tonnes

Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko on Wednesday (June 11, 2008) has forecasts the grain yield for 2008 to reach 58.6 million tonnes.


This new forecast differs from the projection Tymoshenko made in March, when she expects grain yield for 2008 to be in between 40-50 million tonnes.


Tymoshenko also said the government intends to develop a number of policies that would assist in the development of the agricultural sector.
