Purchase prices for wheat in Ukrainian ports increased to 3 300 / ton

Active export demand against the background of rising world prices and limited supply from producers led to an increase in purchase prices for wheat in Ukrainian ports to 3 300/ton.


Farmers take advantage of the lack of rain to quickly harvest late crops and sow winter crops, so they do not have time to sell wheat, even at high prices. After the harvest is completed, the volume of supply, primarily wheat, will increase, especially given the decline in corn prices under the pressure of increased supply and falling world prices.


According to the Ministry of Agriculture, 75% of the planned areas were sown with winter wheat as of October 18.
