The People's Deputies registered in the parliament the bill No. 7548, which exempts the import of sacks, bags, and special equipment for grain storage directly in the fields from import duties. This is a chance to save the harvest in conditions of blocked ports and overflowing warehouses.
According to the bill's author, People's Deputy, Chairman of the Committee on Agrarian and Land Policy Oleksandr Haydu, more than 1 million tons of crops have already been harvested and threshed in Ukraine. The expected forecast is about 50 million tons. However, the export rate of last year's harvest is low - about 2.2 million tons in June. This means that the capacity of working elevators will not be enough to preserve the grain of the past and this year.
