Corn is the third important feed grain in Ukraine. The main production region is eastern and southern Ukraine, although precipitation amounts in some oblasts in the extreme south are too low to support corn production. Corn is typically planted in late April or early May. Harvest begins in late September and is usually nearing completion by early November. Only 25 to 50 percent of total corn area is harvested for grain; the rest is cut for silage, usually in August. Corn is used chiefly for poultry and swine feed, and production and consumption have risen since 2000 concurrent with a rebound in poultry inventories.
The quality of corn corresponds to the following parameters:
Moisture: max 14.5%
Admixture: max 3.0%
Grain admixture: max 21.0%
Damaged: max 14.0%
Broken: max 7.0%
