Ukraine's 2023 wheat harvest seen at 16-18 mln T -1st deputy agriculture minister
KYIV, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Ukraine's 2023 wheat harvest may decrease to 16-18 million tonnes from 19 million tonnes in 2022 due to an expected fall in the winter wheat sowing area, first deputy agriculture minister Taras Vysotskyi said on Tuesday.
Ukrainian agriculture officials have said the area under winter wheat could fall by at least 20% as farmers prefer to sow oilseeds which are more expensive and have stable export demand. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
