Drought-hit Ukraine has introduced temporary grain export quotas
Drought-hit Ukraine has introduced temporary grain export quotas, a spokesman for the country's Agriculture Ministry said Monday. Under a relevant decision adopted by the Ukrainian Cabinet June 20, a quota of 12,000 metric tons of grain exports was introduced Sunday. The quotas cover the export of wheat, rye, barley and corn. The agriculture minister in Ukraine's Crimea, Pavlo Akimov, said earlier that temperatures of up to 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) and soil temperatures of up to 46 degrees Celsius (115 degrees Fahrenheit) in May, as well as a lack of rainfall, had damaged winter and spring grain crops, in particular barley, oats and grain legumes. However, the country stocked up on food resources before the 2007 harvest, and there will no bread shortage, he said. Ukraine is expected to harvest about 30 million metric tons of grain this year.
