Ukraine harvest update

Finally managed to find some information on how the Ukraine harvest is progressing, seems they have stopped publishing information on the Ag Ministry website as they had in previous seasons.

As of 4 July the Ministry report 576kha of early grains and pulses have been harvested (502kha in 2015) producing 2.0mmt with an average yield 3.5mt/ha (3.0mt/ha in 2015).

This includes 99kha of winter wheat with a yield of 3.7mt/ha and 457kha of winter barley with a yield of 3.5mt/ha.

I would expect wheat yields to increase as harvest moves north through the country.
