rape of 865 thousand ha or 112% of the planned 769 thousand ha.

  • wheat and triticale 5.9 million hectares (the forecast of 6.1 million ha),


High global corn harvest lowered the price of grain and heightened competition for markets that worsened the rate of export of Ukrainian corn. The decrease in yields and gross harvest of corn in Ukraine offset by the growth of the crop in the US, so the purchase prices remain at 148-149 $/t for December deliveries at the port. For the supply of maize in January - February, traders offer 151-153 $/ton, because at this time South America will complete the delivery of maize for markets and competition of domestic grain will be only American corn.
