Ukraine: Ukrainian farms harvest 2.9 mln tonnes of barley from 27.8% of total area
Ukrainian farms have harvested 5.5 million tonnes of grain from 8.6% of its sowing area with the yield averaging 4.16 tonne per hectare, the agriculture ministry said on July 16.
The volume includes 2.9 million tonnes of barley, harvested from 27.8% of the area with a yield of 4.29 tonne per hectare, and 2.5 million tonnes of wheat with a yield of 4.11 tonnes, the ministry said.
Favourable weather could help Ukraine to harvest about 76 million tonnes of grain this year, up from 65 million in 2020, the ministry has said.
The APK-Inform consultancy this month said that adverse weather conditions in key grain regions could lead to significant losses in Ukraine's barley and wheat harvests.
