Despite some decline in barley production, in 2015/16 MY Ukraine moved from the 4th to 3rd position in the rating of global exporters, and supplied 4.3 mln tonnes of the grain on foreign markets.
Traditionally, in the current season the EU countries and Australia are the main competitors of Ukraine on the global market. At the same time, Russia lost its previous position and moved to the 4th place.
Also, it is noted that in 2015/16 MY Argentina provided competition to Ukraine in the reporting market segment. Due to cancellation of 20% export duties for the grain, the country managed to supply 2.5 mln tonnes of barley on the global market, up 1.5 times compared with last year.
