The backlog is mainly formed due to the most popular crops – corn and spring barley, crops which, respectively, are 14.5% and 19.2% less than last year and amount to 3.893 thousand hectares and 766.1 thousand acres.

Compared to last year’s figures, millet crops decreased by 2.5%, where 46.1 thousand hectares of land were occupied.

At the same time, the area under other grain crops is greater than a year ago. This applies to spring wheat – 269.5 thousand hectares (by 42.4%), peas – 136.1 thousand hectares (by 4.2%), buckwheat – 106.1 thousand hectares (54.2%).

5.042 million hectares are occupied by sunflower, which is 10.3% higher than last year, but still lower than expected at 5.641 million hectares.

The planted area under sugar beet reached 213.1 thousand hectares, which is 18% higher than last year and not far from the forecast of 220 thousand hectares.

Soybean crops expanded to 1.739 million hectares, exceeding last year by 45.5% and approaching the forecast of 1.841 million hectares.

It was noted that the farmers of Poltava and Kirovograd regions have completed the sowing of spring crops.

Compared to pre-war 2021, crops of spring cereals and legumes are 24% lower, sunflower – by 19.9%, sugar beet – by 5.2%, while in relation to soybeans they increased by 40.5 %.

It was previously reported that by 2023 the sown area in Ukraine will decrease by 7 million hectares – to 29 million hectares – and will change its structure.

It is also predicted that this year the total yield of grain crops in Ukraine will decrease by 60% in 2021, oilseeds – by 15%.
