Ukrainian grain exports in the first 22 days of June fell by 48% from a year earlier to 907,000 tonnes, reported Reuters, citing agriculture ministry data on Wednesday.

The volumes included 803,000 tonnes of corn, 78,000 tonnes of wheat and 21,000 tonnes of barley, the data showed.

Ukraine exported up to 6 million tonnes of grain a month before Russia launched an invasion on 24 February.

May export volumes fell to about 1.7 million tonnes as Ukraine, which used to export most of its goods through seaports, has been forced to transport grain by train via its western border or via its small Danube river ports.
