The structure of planting crops will change in Ukraine.
In 2023, the cultivated grain crop area in Ukraine will amount to 8.7 million hectares, 22% less than in 2022 and 45% less than in 2021. At the same time, the sown oil crop area is forecast at 9.7 million hectares, which is 32% higher than the figure for 2022 and 9% more than the figure for 2021, the Ukrainian Agrarian Business Club predicts. This trend is defined by the fact that the share of logistics in the price of grain crops has increased significantly this year. The Agrarian club predicts that in 2023 the gross harvest of grain may amount to 34 million tons, which is 37% less than in 2022 and 60% less than in 2021. The export potential of grain and oil crops next year will be about 35 million tons or three million tons per month. In the 2021/22 marketing year, it was at 85 million tons of grain and oilseeds or seven million tons per month.
