This was noted by the deputy director of the National Scientific Center "Institute of Agrarian Economics", corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine Mykola Puhachov, the press service of the NSC reported, according to agravery.com.
"Quotas for individual commodity items are systematically growing in 2018.
