The corn yield this year is expected at the record level for Ukraine - 25 million tons.

This forecast was made public by the Agricultural Policy and Food Minister Mykola Prysiazhniuk at a press conference on Tuesday, a Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We are planning to receive the corn yield at the level of 25 million tons, which is record-making for Ukraine,” Prysiazhniuk has noted.

According to him, starting with 2010, Ukrainian agricultural producers boosted sowing of corn to 5 million with crop capacity that rose threefold.
