Ukrainian Grain Exports Reach 1.4 Million Tons, Researcher Says

Ukraine exported 1.4 million metric tons of grains from ports in the first 26 days of February, agriculture researcher UkrAgroConsult said.

The former Soviet state supplied 334,900 tons of wheat, 6,000 tons of barley, and 1 million tons of corn, the researcher, based in Ukraine’s capital Kiev, said today in an e- mailed statement. Wheat was shipped to Spain, Egypt and Israel, which also received barley. Corn went to Egypt, Iran and South Africa.

Ukraine will export 1.16 million tons of grains, including 265,000 tons of wheat and 810,000 of corn in the near future, UkrArgoConsult said.
