harvest time

Harvest of Ukrainian wheat is expected to be five times larger than internal food needs

The volume of harvest from Wheat, Buckwheat, Corn, Barley, Oats, Rye and other crops fully meet the needs of domestic consumption of Ukraine and most of the above items will be exported by the proposal, because food will be much more purposes. This was stated by First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Taras Vysotsky on the air of the national marathon “United News”, reports the press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy.

So the wheat harvest will be at the level of 18-20 million Tonnen expected, which is five times the requirement. Our domestic food consumption is up to 4 million tonnes per year, and there has also been quality wheat in stock since last year.

He also emphasized that much more buckwheat was sown this year than in previous years, which would fully satisfy the domestic market and align the price. A similar situation with Rye, oats and other crops.

“From the perspective of internal food security, even reduced acreage is more than enough to provide Ukrainians with quality produce. In terms of acreage and sowing quality, we do not expect a deficit. In the main grain groups, production will be many times greater than consumption. Therefore, thanks to the unlocking of the Black Sea ports, a significant part of the food will be able to be exported, ”said the first deputy minister.
