Ukraine: Donetsk oblast continues actively harvesting early grains

According to the polling conducted by experts of APK-Inform Agency, Donetsk oblast of Ukraine realizes the harvesting campaign of early grains at rather high rates. The situation is caused by the desire of agricultural producers to complete the harvesting works as soon as possible, due to the tense situation in the region. Also, the favorable weather conditions, established in the oblast, form the important factor for development of the current rates of field works.

According to agrarians, to date the yield of winter grains exceeds the last year results by nearly 10-15%, and varies within the range of 3.5-6 t/ha for wheat, and 4-5.5 t/ha - for barley.
