“As for the sowing campaign, it has started in 21 regions of Ukraine. Almost 10% more [hectares] were sown last autumn than in the previous year, this applies to winter crops. “

“Now sowing campaign is taking place, but we expect that sowing areas will be smaller than last year, it may be 25-30% less, depending on how combat actions will continue, where there will be mined [territories]. Nevertheless, Ukraine will be able to feed itself,” Shmyhal said.”
