Low grain prices are caused by the situation on the world market, general director of the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club Volodymyr Lapa said during the roundtable, ForUm correspondent reports.

According to the expert, a similar situation was observed on the market a year ago. "Then, amid droughts in Ukraine, Russia and the United States the prices in 2012 began to rise rapidly, allowing farmers to work without losses. This year, there are no droughts, and as of today, food wheat of the third class costs 1350 UAH / t, fodder wheat - 1250 UAH / t, which is much less than 1-1.5 months ago," the analyst noted.

He added that this season, Ukraine expects to collect 7.5 million tons of barley, 20-20,5 million tons of wheat and 24-25 million tons of corn, which generally give at least 54-55 million tons.

"This is close to record figures, but the crop has not been harvested so far," he said.
