Ukraine Harvest Latest

The harvest in Ukraine is progressing at a rapid rate, with 13.6% of the planted area already cut, producing 4.375 MMT of grain.

Yields are still running behind last season, with the wheat area harvested so far only producing 2.5 MT/hectare.

A final yield like that would see this season's wheat harvest come in at less than 17 MMT.

Dry spring growing conditions and reduced plantings are expected to cut Ukrainian wheat production this season. A lack of available credit has also forced Ukraine farmers to cut back on fertiliser and pesticide applications this season.
