Mykolayiv region farmers set to break record of harvesting early grains

Mykolayiv region anticipates to gather a record harvest of early crops - it has already harvested 2 million tonnes of early grain crops.

Director of agriculture department at local administration told the Ukrinform reporter.

She also noted that figures could have been even higher if it were not for heavy rains that occurred in Mykolayiv region just prior and during the harvest season. Because of this fact some areas lost 10 to 20 % of grains.

Last year the local farmers gathered 2.334 million tonnes of early grains and it turned out to be the top record in more than last 20 years.
