KYIV, July 19 (Reuters) - Ukraine's grain export has reached 1 million tonnes so far the new 2021/22 July-June season, 108,000 tonnes less than a year earlier, agriculture ministry data showed on Monday.
That included 292,000 tonnes of wheat, 207,000 tonnes of barley and 498,000 tonnes of corn, the data showed.
Ukraine, which has already started the 2021 grain harvest, plans to thresh around 76 million tonnes of grain in 2021 compared to 65 million tonnes in 2020.
The government has said grain exports could rise to 56 million tonnes in the 2021/22 season including 20.7 million tonnes of wheat, 30.7 million tonnes of corn and 4.1 million tonnes of barley.
Exports totalled 44.6 million tonnes in 2020/21. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; editing by Jason Neely)
