China imported six times as much corn from Ukraine — 2 million tons
China imported six times as much corn from Ukraine — 2 million tons – during the first eight months of this marketing year, compared to the earlier September-April 2016/17 period. During the same time, corn exports to Turkey skyrocketed more than 21 times, to 906,000 tons. China wants to replace corn imports from the U.S., and Turkey may sign a free trade pact with Ukraine later this year. Overall, Ukraine’s corn exports are down 14.5% as Brazil and Argentina cut into Ukraine’s other Asian markets, UkrAgroConsult reports.
