GRAINS. According to the Ag Ministry of Ukraine, as of September 11, 2018, late grains in Ukraine were harvested from 69% of their planned areas. The harvest of corn grain is more than 300% the progress of last year, reports UkrAgroConsult.

As of the reporting date, planting of winter grains was already underway all over Ukraine, except for Odesa, Kherson, Kyiv and Zakarpattya regions. Due to a delay in the start of this year’s planting of winter crops, it is now 17% behind last year.
