Ukraine sees early grain crops at 28.5 million tonnes



The Cabinet of Ministers predicts that the gross yield of early grain crops in Ukraine this year will be 28.5-29 million tonnes.


The Agrarian Vice Prime Minister Viktor Slauta said that the harvesting of early grain crops in Ukraine will be completed this week.


He also noted that the current hot sunny weather in Ukraine in some places has significantly improved the class of grain. "The sunny weather in some regions increased the class of grain. In some regions, as high as 70% of the harvested wheat is milling wheat," Slauta said.


He emphasised that these indicators ensure the domestic sufficiency for food and feed, and maintain the export potential of the country.
