KIEV, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Ukraine's grain exports have risen to about 11.1 million tonnes so far in the 2019/20 July-June export season, up from 7.3 million tonnes over the same period last year, the agriculture ministry said on Monday.

The volume includes 6.75 million tonnes of wheat, 2.45 million tonnes of barley and 1.88 million tonnes of corn, the statement from the ministry said.

Ukraine plans to harvest at least 70 million tonnes of grain this year, almost the same as it threshed in 2018.

The ministry gave no export forecast for the whole season. In 2018/19 Ukraine exported a record 50 million tonnes of grains.
