Sowing of winter crops continues in Ukraine. About 90% of the planned area has already been sown with rapeseed, which is 840,000 hectares.
About Tshe told First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Taras Vysotsky during the press conference “Harvest in Ukraine 2022”.
“Wheat and barley sowing is just beginning. Now in Ukraine, the weather is mostly rainy, which will contribute to the germination and good vegetation of plants. The areas projected under these crops are sufficient for the formation of food reserves for the next year,” says Taras Vysotskyi.
He also added that this year corn production is expected to be more than three times higher than the level of consumption. In addition, sugar beet digging continues.
“It is too early to talk about gross indicators, but the yield of more than 500 t/ha makes it possible to model sugar production at the level of 1.1-1.2 million tons for domestic consumption of 1.150 million tons. That is, Ukrainians will be provided with domestic sugar,” says Taras Vysotskyi .
