Ukraine exported 461 thousand tons of wheat
Last week Ukraine (from August 21 to August 25, 2017) exported 461 thousand tons of wheat.
This is reported by Agritel.com.
The report also says that Ukraine exported 120 thousand tons of barley.
It is noted that in Russia wheat export rates are still at a low level compared with the export opportunities of the country. Over the past week in Russia, 512 thousand tons of wheat were shipped. Thus, Russia's export rates are too slow to reach the export target (USDA) of 31.5 million tons of wheat. It is reported that 130 thousand tons of barley were shipped.
Earlier it was reported that from the beginning of 2017/18 MY as of August 18, 2017 Ukraine exported more than 5.01 million tons of grain against 5.2 million tons of grain for the same period last MY.
