As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 2, Ukrainian farmers completed early spring crop sowing campaign at 2.1 million hectares. Grain harvest in 2018 amounted to a record 70.1 million tonnes. According to the national weather watchdog, Ukraine in 2019 should expect high yields of grains and legumes, while the heat in June prevented record volumes.
