Ukraine, a major global grain producer, has harvested almost 77 million metric tons of grain and oilseeds from the new 2023 harvest so far, the agriculture ministry said on Friday.

The ministry gave no comparative data.

It said 56.3 million tons of grain and 20.7 million tons of oilseeds had been threshed. The harvest ends late this year, depending on the weather.

The volume included 22.5 million tons of wheat, 5.9 million tons of barley, 399,500 tons of peas, 26.8 million tons of corn and smaller contributions from other cereals.

The ministry also said farmers had harvested 4.5 million tons of rapeseed and 11.9 million tons of sunseed. (Reporting by Yuliia Dysa; Editing by Sharon Singleton)
