UPDATE 1-UkrAgroConsult forecasts Ukraine 2018 grain harvest to fall 2 pct from 2017

 (Adds quotes, table)
    KIEV, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Ukraine's 2018 grain harvest is
likely to decrease 2 percent from a year ago to 61.1 million
tonnes due to a smaller output of wheat, analyst UkrAgroConsult
said on Wednesday.
    Wheat output is likely to decrease to 25.1 million tonnes
this year from 26.1 million in 2017 despite a larger sowing
area, the consultancy said in a statement.
    "Our basic scenario envisages possible losses of winter
wheat plantings at most at 5-6 percent, or up to 300,000
hectares and a yield at the three-year average," UkrAgroConsult
said. The 300,000 hectare loss is equivalent to about 741,000
acres. 
    UkrAgroConsult said that the area of wheat plantings rose by
around 2 percent and that wheat sprouted at 99.8 percent of the
area.
