Ukraine has exported 13.6 mln tons of grain in the 2021/2022 marketing year.

 As of September 29, Ukraine exported 13.611 mln tons of grains and pulses. The announcement was made by the press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine. In September Ukraine has exported: 4.845 mln tons of grain, 8.417 mln tons of wheat, 3.596 mln tons of barley, 30.9 thousand tons of rye, and 1.395 mln tonnes of corn.

China’s trade war with Australia could lead to a doubling and tripling of Ukraine’s grain exports to China,

Mykola Gorbachov, President of the Ukrainian Grain Association, tells Argus Media after signing a binational deal in June. This year, Ukraine has nearly tripled its barley exports to China. Ukraine now accounts for two thirds of China’s barley imports. For October-April, Ukraine’s corn exports to China are 7.3 million tons, up by one third compared to all of last year.

This spring’s cool, wet weather will boost grain harvests by 14.5% and exports by 28%,

the Ukrainian Grain Association predicted yesterday. In reality, this would return Ukraine to the bumper year of 2019/2020. Looking ahead, corn exports are to jump 27% in the coming marketing year, to 30 million tons. Wheat exports are to increase by 37%, to 21 million tons. The sunflower harvest is to increase by 28%, to 16.5 million tons, slightly more than the 2019/2020 level.
