Harvesting nearly complete in Ukraine

The farmers in Ukraine had harvested 86% of the area sown by the end of last week. Average yields range at 1.31 mt/ha on the c. 72,300 ha harvested so far and production at 94,800 mt. Prices are up in China as some farmers are holding back, which renders it more difficult for exporters to obtain supplies. The prices for hulled organic buckwheat are quoted at USD 1,270/mt FOB Dalian and for conventional buckwheat at USD 1,200/mt FOB Dalian.
