"The grain harvest in Ukraine in 2019, could be reduced to 68.4 million tons, or about 2.4-3%," said Lupenko.
However, he noted that the harvest of summer grain this year could fall by 9-10%, mainly due to the reduction of the corn crop.
So, the corn crop in 2019 is expected to reach 31.6 million tons, which is almost 12% less than last year's harvest.
At the same time, the expert noted that the winter wheat crop in 2019 could increase by 9% compared to last year due to the winter wheat crop which is expected to reach 26.2 million tons.
