Ukraine's grain production and exports decreased

Europe News Desk!!! Ukraine’s grain production and exports are set to decline sharply in 2022 amid the Russia-Ukraine conflict. An industry body gave this information. Ukraine Agribusiness Club (UCAB) said in a report that in 2022, Ukraine’s grain production is set to drop 37 percent to 53.9 million tons. The main reason for this is the agricultural land rendered infertile by Russia’s occupation of Ukrainian territories, hostilities and landmines. Ukraine’s grain exports declined by 24 percent to 38.4 million tons last year due to the blockade of the main grain export routes and ports, Xinhua news agency reported. According to it, Ukraine’s oilseed production fell by 24 percent last year to 17.5 million tonnes, while exports stood at 7.9 million tonnes. According to the latest government estimates, Ukraine is expected to have about 49.5 million tons of grain this year.
