The grain harvest forecast in Ukraine remains at the level of 2017 – 60 million tonnes and more, despite that some regions in the south and east of the country have no rains, Ukraine’s Agricultural Policy and Food Ministry has reported. According to the report, since early April there were cases of drought in Ukraine, although rains in June stabilized the situation and brought most of the regions from the risk zone. “Rains have started and we expect that in general, gross early and late grain crop harvest will be at the level of the last year,” First Deputy Minister Maksym Martyniuk said.
