Harvest 2017: more than 55 million tons of grain harvested in Ukraine

The harvest of 2017 has become one of the most successful for Ukraine in recent years. According to official data, more than 55 million tons of grain were threshed, which is 5 million tons more than a year earlier. Corn, wheat and barley, which showed record results, became the leaders in yields this year.

However, despite the overall success, individual crop yields were affected by adverse weather conditions. For example, this year’s sunflower harvest was lower than in the past, due to dryness during the growing season. Also, according to experts, grain quality was lower due to high humidity during harvesting.

However, the overall result of the 2017 harvest suggests that Ukraine continues to be one of the largest grain producers in the world. In addition, a favorable situation on world markets may contribute to an increase in grain exports from Ukraine next year.
