Ukraine 2020 grain harvest 95% complete

KYIV, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Ukraine has harvested 60.3 million tonnes of grain from 14.6 million hectares, or 95% of the sown area, as of Nov. 19, economy ministry data showed on Friday.

Farmers had completed the wheat and barley harvest and collected 24.5 million tonnes of corn from 4.7 million hectares, or 86% of the sown area, the data showed.

The ministry expects the grain crop could fall to around 68 million tonnes in 2020 from a record 75 million tonnes in 2019 due to severe drought across most parts of the country. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; editing by Jason Neely)
