Ukraine May Resume Wheat Exports If Enough Sowing Completed

  • Cabinet will likely discuss easing of curbs in April: official
  • Restrictions already lifted on corn, sunflower oil exports

Ukraine may ease wheat-export curbs as soon as next month, once it is confident that spring sowing is progressing enough despite Russia’s invasion, though export capacity remains strained with some seaports effectively closed by fighting, an official who oversees the country’s trade said.

The Cabinet will likely discuss whether it can remove licenses required from shippers to sell wheat abroad in April, after it estimates potential yields following planting and makes sure this year’s harvest will be enough to provide food security, Taras Kachka, deputy economy minister told Bloomberg News in a video interview Sunday.
