The cost of grain in Ukraine is almost twice the price on the market – expert

In Ukraine, the average price for grain is UAH 3-4 thousand per ton, while the prime cost is UAH 5.5-6 thousand.

Denys Marchuk, Deputy Chairman of the All-Ukrainian Agrarian Council, said this at a briefing at the Ukraine Media Center – Ukrinform.

“The cost of production today is many times higher than the price offered on the market. For example, we spend around UAH 5.5-6 thousand per ton of grown products, and it is sold within UAH 3-4 thousand”, the expert said.

Marchuk added that the resumption of full-fledged agricultural exports from Ukraine would help domestic prices rise to the level of international markets.

“The more intense the movement of exports through the seaport, the greater the supply of transportation opportunities will be. And thus the price inside should go up a little,” he explained.
