Ukraine Exports

14/03/12 -- Ukraine's Ministry say that they've exported 13.9 MMT of grain so far this season, an impressive 68.5% more than at the same time last year.

Last year's record corn crop is flying out of the door like you know what off a shovel, with exports up almost threefold to 8.24 MMT. Wheat exports are up 22.5 % to 3.5 MMT. Barley shipments are 17% lower at 2.0 MMT.

The Ukrainian Grain Association say that this season's grain exports will reach 22 MMT, which is down on earlier hopes but 1-2 MMT higher than the latest Ministry estimate.
