GRAINS. The harvest of late grains in Ukraine was 96% complete as of November 19, 2018 (95% as of November 12, 2018). Moreover, this is up 4% from November 20, 2017, reports UkrAgroConsult.

The corn harvest completion rate closed the week at 90% (86% a week ago). This work is now 12.8% ahead of last year, but somewhat slower than a week ago when it was 15.4% ahead of 2017.

Planting of winter crops is actually complete. Noteworthy is that farmers have seeded 120 Th ha to winter rye out of the projected 147 Th ha (some 81%).
