In 2013/14 MY Ukraine decreased the imports of maize seeds from France
In October-July of 2013/14 MY Ukraine imported nearly 8.8 thsd tonnes of maize seeds from France, a decrease of 12% compared with the same period of 2012/13 MY (10 thsd tonnes), and down 15% compared with 2011/12 MY (10.3 thsd tonnes).
It should be noted that traditionally France is one of the three major suppliers of maize seeds to Ukraine.

Generally, during the season the volume of maize seed imports to Ukraine increased. So, in October-June of 2013/14 MY Ukraine purchased 55.2 thsd tonnes of the seeds on foreign markets, against 48.7 thsd tonnes in the same period of 2012/13 MY, and 49.6 thsd tonnes in 2011/12 MY.
