Ukraine: exports of peas broke the record during recent three seasons
According to the operative statistics, in July-August of 2012 Ukraine exported nearly 54 thsd tonnes of peas (including groats). At the same time, in the same period of 2011 the export volumes totaled over 34 thsd tonnes of the legume and by-products, in 2010 - nearly 42 thsd tonnes.
It is noteworthy that the trend is observed on the background of reduction of the forecast of the exports from the level of 142 thsd tonnes in 2011/12 MY to 130 thsd tonnes in the current season.
