KIEV, UKRIANE — Ukraine’s grain exports for the July 2020-June 2021 season has decreased 14.9% to 12.3 million tonnes, according to Reuters, citing the economy ministry.

The exports for the season so far include 8.7 million tonnes of wheat, 2.9 million tonnes of barley and 678,000 tonnes of corn.

Ukraine’s exports are expected to decline to 47.4 million tonnes in the 2020-21 season compared to 57.2 million tonnes of grain exported in the 2019-20 season, Reuters reported.

The economy ministry attributed the slowed grain exports to a weak harvest, which is expected to decrease to 68 million tonnes in the 2020 season compared to a record 75.1 million in 2019.
