The Increase of Ukrainian Grain Export

Last marketing year was successful for Ukraine in grain export; the country could increase it by 17%

June 2021-July 2022 is commonly supposed as a marketing year. So, since the beginning of 2021, Ukraine has exported 26076 thousand tonnes of grain. This amount of grain was counted for the 6th of December this year.

It means the export increased by 16.9 %, equal to 3779 thousand tonnes compared to the last marketing year period, was announced regarding the Ministry of agricultural policy.

For this period, 14602 thousand tonnes of wheat, 4965 thousand tonnes of barley, 82,9 thousand tonnes of rye, 6207 thousand tonnes of corn were already exported.

But during the same period, the export of wheat flour decreased dramatically and flour of other crops. Considering figures, it is 24.7% or 17.4 thousand tonnes to 53,1 thousand tonnes.

Let's compare these figures to the previous year's period. In 2020-2021 the wheat export was about 16,64 million tonnes, the corn export was 23,08 million tonnes, and the flour export was about 0,13 million tonnes.

This dramatic change in export figures cannot encourage the Ministry of agricultural policy and Production. However, Ukraine still has time to improve the statistics until the end of the marketing year in the summer.
