The head of an international grain merchandiser suggests the outlook for exporting grain out of Ukraine is not improving.
Jay Debertin is CEO of the nation’s largest ag cooperative, CHS.
“Conditions to export products are really operating at a trickle. We and other grain companies are trying to get out of the country what we can via rail, but the country of Ukraine was really set up to be an export market via ship.”
He tells Brownfield the rail system was designed to move grain from farms to the ports.
