“We will harvest about 47 million tonnes,” Azarov said at the 9th Yalta Annual Meeting on Friday.

The premier noted that, while weather conditions were quite
unfavorable this summer, the harvest will not drop significantly from
2011 due to the government’s policy, unlike the situation during the
2003 drought, when Ukraine harvested only 23 million tonnes.

Moreover, this government policy will enable Ukraine to increase its
annual grain harvest to 100 million tonnes within the next several
years, Azarov said. “And then Ukraine will become a major player on the
market,” he said.
