Ukraine wheat sees crop outlook boost


Ukraine saw its forecast for the 2016 wheat harvest increased to 24.8 million tonnes from its previous outlook of 23.3 mln tonnes, according to local analyst UkrAgroConsult.

The raised estimate was attributed to recent government data which had shown that sowing area had increased from 6 mln hectares to 6.2 mln ha, citing that yields are expected to reach 4 tonnes per hectare this season.
