The USDA's report from Kiev highlights a projected downturn in Ukraine's agricultural sector for the 2024/25 commercial year, with corn production expected to decrease by 6% to 26.6 million tons and exports by 9.35% to 22.3 million tons, largely due to the unprofitability following Russia's invasion. Similarly, wheat production is anticipated to drop by 9% to 21.1 million tons, with a significant 26.9% reduction in exports to 12.8 million tons. Despite these setbacks, there's a silver lining as improved Black Sea logistics could enhance export capabilities, and the European Union remains a strong market for Ukrainian grains, thanks to the temporary suspension of import taxes and quotas.
