“According to UCAB, today grain harvest is anticipated at 44 million tonnes. If the drought continues for another two or three weeks, the expected gross grain harvest could fall to 40 million tonnes,” reads a report of the association issued on July 9, 2012.

The UCAB said that the first results of the harvesting campaign, which this year started two weeks earlier than usual, show a low yield of early crops. The association said that as of July 9, 2012, Ukraine threshed around 3.6-3.7 million hectares, with the average yield of early crops of 19-19.5 centners per hectare (28.4 centners per hectare in 2012).

UCAB specialists said that due to a shortage of moisture and high temperatures, early crops formed small ears.
