Ukraine’s state-run railroad is trying to fill the void from the closure of Black Sea ports. Ukrainian railways may deliver grain to border areas where it could go to ports. “I don’t know how excited I’d be to be a buyer of that product, but I’m sure there are countries that would risk it to make those purchases,” said Luke Swenson, market analyst, The Money Farm. Ukrainian crop production is another consideration. “They run basically the same crop schedule we do and we are about one month from planting wheat and then, corn production. It will take time for them to work out the logistics of handling a crop. I’m not sure if they can realistically make that happen.”
