Ukraine wheat exports seen at 13 mln T in 2022/23 - traders union UGA

KYIV, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Ukraine is able to export 13 million tonnes of wheat and 20 million tonnes of corn in the 2022/23 July-June season, Ukrainian grain traders union UGA said on Wednesday.

The country's grain output could fall sharply to 51 million tonnes in 2022 from a record 86 million tonnes due to the Russian invasion, Ukrainian agriculture ministry's senior official said earlier on Wednesday.

"The export of grain and oilseeds in the 2022/2023 season can be expected at the specified level, if the work of Ukrainian Black Sea ports for export remains until the end of the season," UGA said in a note.

It says that exporting grain through Ukrainian ports and ensuring the safety of navigation in the Black Sea is the only way to quickly and efficiently supply Ukrainian grain to countries that desperately need it.

The agriculture ministry said Ukraine had exported 6.3 million tonnes of wheat so far the 2022/23 season which runs from July to June. The exports totalled 14 million tonnes in the same period in 2021/22.
