According to Ukragroconsult by November 25 Ukrainian farmers harvested corn from 3.6M ha, which is about 84% of total area. Reported yield increased up to more than 6.2t/ ha, 22.4M tons of corn is already harvested.
Despite worsening of weather conditions in the middle of November, which slowed down harvesting, as corn harvesting campaign progresses from South to Northern regions of Ukraine, corn yields have been increasing. This fact is illustrated in the table below:

Earlier we projected average Ukrainian corn yield for the current marketing year at 6.2-6.3t/ha. Factual reported average yield is close to estimated figure, still on downside are weather conditions – snowy weather is expected to come back to Ukraine again.
Taking into account updated data for corn, by November 25 total Ukrainian grains harvest made 61.6M tons (vs. 60.1M tons in previous year).
