During the next five years, Ukraine will be able to gather harvest of 100 million tons of grain per year, Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said at the 9th annual meeting of the Yalta European Strategy, ForUm correspondent reports.
According to him, the climate changes became the main challenge faced by the Ukrainian agro-industrial complex. "I would like to give an example of what we have done to minimize the impact of climate changes on our agricultural complex. In 2003, it was a very serious drought. But we managed to collect 23 million tons of grain. It was the lowest yield that one can imagine," the Prime Minister said.
He reminded that during the agricultural year of 2011-2012, there was very little rainfall. "But we will collect about 47 million tons. This is our answer in terms of food security," Azarov said.
