In 2013 Ukraine to produce 9 mln tonnes of sunflower seed – Hydrometeorological center
In the current year the general harvest of sunflower seed in Ukraine may reach 9 mln tonnes, declared Tatiana Adamenko, Head of the department of agrometeorology of the Hydrometeorological center of Ukraine, on August 27.
She also noted that the yield of the oilseed is forecasted at the level of 1.8 t/ ha.
While speaking about the expected harvest of maize, which mass harvesting Ukraine will start in early September, T.Adamenko confirmed that forecast the Hydrometeorological center totals 25 mln tonnes. The favorable air temperature conditions, conducive to development of the grain areas, will contribute to achievement of the target, according to the expert.
The only exception is Kherson oblast, where the shortage of maize harvest may reach 30%, due to dry weather, said T.Adamenko.
At the same time, due to the expected precipitations, in the near future throughout Ukraine there will be observed favorable conditions for planting of winter crops, declared Anatoly Prokopenko, Deputy Director of the Hydrometeorological center.
But A.Prokopenko forecasted that in the east and south-east of the country the situation with planting of winter crops will be quite difficult, because it is not expected for any significant rainfalls in the regions.
