Ukraine 2022 grain harvest at 25.9 mln T as of Sept. 9

KYIV, Sept 9 (Reuters) - Ukrainian farms have harvested 25.9 million tonnes of grain from 60% of the sown area in 2022 as of Sept. 9, the agriculture ministry said on Friday.

Ukraine is a major global grain producer and exporter but is likely to register a significant drop in output this year, falling to about 50 million tonnes from a record 86 million tonnes in 2021, because of the Russian invasion.

The ministry said in a statement the average grain yield stood at 3.84 tonnes per hectare.

It said the country had almost completed 2022 wheat harvest with output at 19.2 million tonnes in bunker weight and the yield at 4.1 tones per hectare.

Farms also harvested 5.5 million tonnes of barley from 100% of the area and close to 250,000 tonnes of peas from 98% of the sown area.

The ministry said farms had also started the corn harvest, threshing the first 3,900 tonnes. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; editing by David Evans)
