Ukraine: Ministry of Agrarian Policy to revise its forecast of grain harvest in case of heat

The FINANCIAL -- The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine will review its forecast of grain production in the case of continuation of the current high temperature indices in the coming week, declared Oleksiy Pavlenko, Minister of Agrarian Policy, on July 9.

According to him, if the current weather condition remains unchanged, in a week the Ministry will make some adjustments to the forecast of grain production, which still totals 59-60 mln tonnes.

Due to continuous rains in the southern part of Ukraine, some wheat fields were affected by fungus and sooty mold, so the Ministry plans to reduce the forecast of milling wheat production, according to APK Inform.
