Ukraine Crop Conditions

The Ukraine Ag Ministry say that around 600,000 ha of winter sown grains perished at the hands of a cruel winter, that represents around 7% of the total planted area of 8.56 million ha. A further area in excess of 800,000 ha is looking weak or sparse.

They say that 7.96 million ha survived the winter, with 42% of that in good condition and 47% in fair condition.
