KIEV, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine has almost completed this year’s grain harvest campaign, Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food Nikolai Prisyazhnyuk told a briefing on Wednesday.
“The harvesting campaign is almost over. We have already gathered 63.2 million tonnes. About 400,000 tonnes of grain is yet to be harvested. Most probably, the republic’s grain harvest in bunker weight will be 61.5 million tonnes,” the minister said.
In his words, the present-day situation in the country’s agricultural sector is stable - winter crop seedlings are in normal condition.
The Ukrainian agriculture minister declared that about 15.2 million tonnes of grain have already been delivered abroad in the current marketing year (from July 2013 through June 2014). With due account, Prisyazhnyuk said that the ministry kept its forecasts for grain supplies to foreign markets at more than 30 million tonnes.
Touching upon the general situation in Ukraine’s agricultural sector, he said that this year’s exports of agricultural products stood at 13.5 billion U.S. dollars, while imports amounted to 6.8 billion U.S. dollars.
The republic’s Agrarian Fund is expected to accumulate 1.2 million tonnes of grain stocks before the yearend.
