Ukraine as of June 29 has threshed 313,900 tons of grain and leguminous crops from 95,000 hectares.
According to the press service of the Agricultural Policy and Food Ministry, average yield is 33 hundredweights per ha.
Some 28,000 tons of winter wheat were threshed on 10,200 ha with the yield of 27.5 hundredweights per ha.
Some 275,900 tons of winter barley were threshed on 80,800 ha with the yield of 34.2 hundredweights per ha and 6,700 tons of spring barley on 2,800 ha with the yield of 24 hundredweights per ha.
Around 3,200 tons of peas were harvested from 1,300 ha with the yield of 25.6 hundredweights per ha.
“Weather conditions in the past weeks were unfavorable. This would result in a slight reduction of grain harvest compared with a record-breaking harvest seen last year. However, this reduction is not dramatic and it would not affect the country’s food security,” First Deputy Agricultural Policy and Food Minister Maksym Martyniuk said.
The ministry expects that the new harvest wheat would be of good quality. This would result in boosting flour exports. (Interfax-Ukraine/Business World Magazine)
