Ukraine to import milling grain
KIEV ,Ukraine will import about 600,000 tonnes of milling grain by the end of this year, a spokesman for Ukraine's government said on Thursday.
The condition of grain crops had improved after Ukraine had rain in recent weeks and that the country would not need huge grain imports, he said.
Earlier this year officials said Ukraine would import up to 1.2 million tonnes of grain in 2003/04.
"The situation is much better than we forecast previously," he said, quoting deputy Prime Minister for agriculture, Ivan Kyrylenko. He declined to give new crop forecast.
Earlier this month, agriculture officials said Ukraine could harvest up to 30 million tonnes of grain, including about five million tonnes of milling wheat.
But agriculture experts and traders said the government's forecast for imports was unrealistic and Ukraine could import between 1.5 and three million tonnes of milling wheat to ensure that Ukraine's 48 million population has enough bread.
"Ukraine has to import significant parcels of milling wheat because we need about six million tonnes of milling wheat domestically, while we might only harvest about half of this volume," one Ukrainian trader said.
