Hot, dry weather across most of Ukraine may reduce yields of corn, the nation’s top food export

Hot, dry weather across most of Ukraine may reduce yields of corn, the nation’s top food export, UkrAgroConsult says. Earlier this month, before the hot weather, the consultancy raised its 2018 corn crop forecast to a record 28.5 million tons. Now, it warns: “High air temperatures may entail a decrease in corn yield, especially in late-seeded fields.” By contrast, the USDA forecast last week a 31 million ton harvest — 29% more than last year’s crop of 24 million tons.
