Barley news Ukraine: Barley crop, exports forecast cut due to severe drought

The UkrAgroConsult agriculture consultancy on June 12 cut its forecast for Ukraine’s 2018/19 crop year wheat and barley harvest and exports due to a severe drought across the country.

The consultancy reduced its wheat harvest forecast by 3 percent to 25.5 million tonnes and exports to 16 million tonnes from 17 million tonnes forecasted in May.

The harvest of barley is likely to decrease by 4 percent to 7.1 million tonnes, while 2018/19 barley exports could fall to 3.7 million tonnes from the previous estimate of 4 million tonnes, the consultancy said in a statement.
