KYIV, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Ukrainian farms have started the 2022 sunflower and soy beans harvest, the agriculture ministry said on Friday.
Farmers had threshed the first 81,700 tonnes of sunseed from 1% of the sowing area, and 1,300 tonnes of soy beans from 0.1% of the area, the ministry said in a report.
Ukraine before the Russian invasion in February was a major sunflower seed grower and sunflower oil exporter. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; editing by Jason Neely)
