Ukraine can double the production volumes of grains — UGA




For 20 recent years, Ukraine increased the production of grains and oilseeds in more than 2.5 times. At the same time, there is more to come, and the general production volumes can increase by another 1.5-2 times, reported the press-service of the Ukrainian Grain Association (UGA).

In 2018/19 MY, the production of grains and oilseeds totaled 92 mln tonnes, and the exports — 54 mln tonnes. In the following years, UGA experts forecasted the growth of production to 100 mln tonnes. And it is only the start. To date, the average yield of wheat in Ukraine totals 4 t/ha, while in France the figures reach 8 t/ha, the yield of corn in Ukraine totals nearly 7 t/ha, while in the USA agricultural producers provide the figures of 12-13 t/ha, explained UGA experts.

According to the announcement, Ukrainian agricultural producers can significantly increase the production by increasing crop yield figures.
