By 2025, due to increasing of the yield indices, the general grain harvest in Ukraine may increase by 73% (to 80 mln tonnes), oilseeds – up 32% (to 16 mln tonnes). As for the exports of grains, the expected growth may total nearly 83% - to 62.8 mln tonnes, said the expert.
According to R.Rybchinskiy, in turn, the situation will require the further increasing of the capacities of linear elevators in Ukraine in 2.3 times - to 69 mln tonnes.
It will also require increasing of the effective capacity of the port terminals - from the current level of 39.1 mln tonnes to 57.1 mln tonnes per year, he added.
