Information system “Calculation of grains balance forecast for Ukraine”

The prototype of the system was created in September 2012 using official information from the State Statistics Service of Ukraine.

The system is based 120 direct indicators related to production, processing, consumption, trade and stocks that are coming from 13 different statistical forms and surveys. Based on this information, the system generates 15 indicators that form the balance for wheat, barley, corn, rye, and total grain.

The indicators are updated to the system on a monthly basis (depending on the indicator) and can be compared to the corresponding estimates from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) for Ukraine.
