Analyst APK-Inform raises Ukraine's 2022 grain crop forecast
KYIV, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Ukraine's 2022 grain harvest could total between 54.1 to 55.7 million tonnes compared with a record 86 million tonnes due to the Russian invasion which has reduced the harvested area, analyst APK-Inform said on Saturday.
The consultancy said in a report that the harvest could include 19 million tonnes of wheat, 30 million tonnes of corn and 5.5 million tonnes of barley.
It said a smaller harvest and logistical difficulties could cut 2022/23 July-June exports to between 22.6 and 38.8 million tonnes. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Editing by David Clarke)
