Ukraine’s grain exports reached 16.5 million metric tons since July 1, Agriculture Minister Mykola Prysyazhnyuk said.
Another 7 million tons may be exported by June 30, Prysyazhnyuk told reporters on April 11 in the capital, Kyiv. That would take total exports in the marketing year to 23.5 million tons, nearly double the 12.1 million tons shipped in the previous marketing year.
