11.07.2018

OILSEEDS. The harvest of winter rapeseed continues all over Ukraine, except for Chernihiv region, reports UkrAgroConsult.

According to the Ag Ministry of Ukraine, winter rapeseed had been harvested from 571.2 Th ha by July 10 (58% of its forecast harvest area of 983 Th ha). The crop amounted to 1370.2 KMT with an average yield of 2.4 MT/ha. As harvest advanced, the yield value went up. So, rapeseed yield as of July 10 was almost 16% higher than a year ago (2.07 MT/ha).

Due to an earlier start of the harvest, its progress is far ahead of last year. So, farmers harvested 176 KMT of rapeseed from 85 Th ha a year ago.

GRAINS. As of July 10, 2018, the harvest of rye and oats was already in progress in nine regions of Ukraine: Donetsk, Kirovohrad, Luhansk, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Kyiv, Poltava, Volyn, and Zhytomyr. Farmers have started harvesting oats in Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv regions.

Overall, the harvest of early cereals and pulses in Ukraine is 249% ahead of last year, UkrAgroConsult notes.
