First deputy agrarian policy and food minister Ivan Bisiuk urged Ukrainian grain producers not to sell their products under the counter.

"Today, depending on the region, the price for wheat of the third grade ranges from 1.470 UAH to 1.800 UAH per ton, for feed wheat of the sixth grade - from 1340 UAH to 1610 UAH per ton," he told press conference, ForUm correspondent reports.

The first deputy minister stressed that in the global market, particularly in the markets of the European Union, the price for wheat today is 254 dollars per ton, or slightly more than 2 thousand UAH.

"If we take into account the price for grain logistics, and it is 546 UAH per ton, the domestic price of grain in the EU will be around 1400-1450 per ton, whereas our State Food Grain Corporation buys wheat of the third grade for 1770 UAH per ton," the official informed.

In connection with this Bisiuk addressed the grain producers not to sell their products cheaply. "We have information that the grain is sold for 1250-1300 UAH per ton under the counter, reasoning that by the fact that they need money to carry out further work on harvesting and preparing the soil for the next planting season," he said.

"If you do not have money, you can, first, sell grain to the Grain Corporation. If there is no wheat grain, but you have corn, then you can conclude the contract on forward purchases with the State Food Grain Corporation. My point is that you should not rush from one extreme to another," Bisiuk summed up.
