KYIV/DALIAN. In Ukraine, the goal for millet cultivation could not be reached, but if growing conditions remain stable, the crop may still exceed last year's result.

At least 100,000 mt

In Ukraine, this year's millet sowing has meanwhile been completed, but expectations could not be met. According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Agriculture, 51,100 ha were sown with millet, which is only 85% of the 60,100 ha originally planned. Under the current growing conditions, a yield of 2.1 mt/ha is expected, which would correspond to a production result of 107,300 mt. This means that the crop could still exceed last year's result of 102,000 mt. The US Department of Agriculture, meanwhile, estimates production in Ukraine at 100,000 mt.
