In the October report, the Ukrainian Grain Association clarified the estimate of this year's wheat harvest - the figure was reduced from 26.6 million tonnes to 25.3 million tonnes.
According to the Economy Ministry, as of October 19, Ukrainian farmers threshed 47.4 million tonnes of grain and leguminous crops from an area of 12.3 million hectares (80% of the forecast).
At a briefing on October 22, Deputy Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) Dmytro Solohub stated that the central bank lowered its grain harvest forecast in 2020 from 72 million tonnes to 67 million tonnes.
