Ukraine Spring Barley Planting Areas Rose 11% This Year

May 3 (Bloomberg) -- Ukraine’s spring barley areas rose 11 percent year-on-year after farmers completed planting, Agriculture Minister Mykola Prysyazhnyuk said.

Farmers planted 2.81 million hectares (6.9 million acres) of barley for the 2012 harvest, Prysyazhnyuk said in an e-mailed statement today. This compares with 2.53 million hectares sowed last year, statistics data shows.

Ukraine’s early spring grain areas rose by 200,000 hectares to 3.6 million hectares, he said.

Corn, a late spring grain, has so far been planted on 2 million hectares, or 44 percent of what the government plans, Prysyazhnyuk said.
