The area under corn this year has decreased by 15% compared to the previous year and now stands at 4.63 million hectares. Corn harvest is expected at 26.1 million tons compared to 37.6 million tons last year due to war, occupation of territories, lower yields, according to the Ukrainian Grain Association.

The area under wheat in 2022 amounted to 6.44 million hectares, which is 2% more than in the previous season. At the same time, the harvest is expected at 19.2 million tons, which is significantly less than the 33 million tons in the previous season. The reason is lower yields, Russian occupation of territories and damage to crops due to hostilities.

Despite the lower wheat harvest, the volume is three times higher than the annual consumption in Ukraine. That’s why Ukrainians will have bread.
