Ukraine’s June 1-7 sea port grain exports dive on-week

Wednesday, 12 June 2019 | 00:00

Ukrainian grain exports from sea ports in the week ended June 1-7 dropped to 493,000 tonnes from 1.02 million tonnes a week earlier, the APK-Inform consultancy said.

Corn exports dived to 326,000 tonnes from 725,000 tonnes, while wheat shipments decreased to 167,000 tonnes from 287,000 tonnes, the consultancy said.

Ukraine sent its grains mostly to Turkey, Egypt and Spain.

The country has exported almost 42.8 million tonnes of wheat, corn and barley so far this season, which runs from July to June, APK-Inform said.

That is up from 33.4 million tonnes in the same period in 2017/18.

However, the agriculture ministry said last week’s exports totalled 47.3 million tonnes so far in the 2018/19 season.

The country harvested a record 70 million tonnes of grains this year and expects to export about 49 million tonnes in the 2018/19 July-June season.
