Ukraine Farmers Step Up Selling Due To Credit Problems

Ukrainian farmers are trying to stir up their selling of agricultural products, according to experts of IA APK-Inform. The situation is being caused by the worsening financial crisis, they say. Banks are very reluctant to give credit and farmers have to increase their own funds through selling of agricultural products.

At the same time, farmers are offering for sale mainly grains and prefer to restrain sunseed sales in order to wait for improving prices on the oilseeds market.

But despite agricultural producers efforts, both grains and oilseeds prices continue at low levels of trading activity due to insufficient volume of buyers, IA APK-Inform say.
