The April-May drought pushed winter wheat yields down 9%,

The April-May drought pushed winter wheat yields down 9%, the Agriculture Ministry reports. To date, Ukraine has harvested 20 million tons of early grain crops, virtually the same amount as this time last year. But the harvested area is 10% larger than last year. In contrast, July’s rains are boosting corn – a late season crop – by 10-12%, Dragon Capital says. At the end of the crop year, Ukraine’s overall grain production will be up 2-4%, to 62.5-64 million tons, Dragon calculates. UkrAgroConsult predicts that this year Ukraine could see a record corn harvest.
