March 15, 2012

Ukrainian grain exports from ports rose 15 percent from a month earlier in March’s first 11 days, UkrAgroConsult said.

Shipments increased to 617,900 metric tons from 535,200 tons, the Kiev-based agricultural researcher said today in an e- mailed statement, citing market operators.

Corn accounted for 433,100 tons of deliveries and was shipped to Israel, Spain and Egypt, UkrAgroConsult said. Wheat exports reached 90,500 tons and went to the same nations, while barley shipments of 91,700 tons went to Saudi Arabia.

Another 1.38 million tons of grains, including 355,000 tons of wheat, 100,000 tons of barley and 925,000 tons of corn, probably will be shipped from ports soon, UkrAgroConsult said.
