KIEV, March 6 (Reuters) - Analyst UkrAgroConsult on Tuesday raised its forecast for Ukraine's 2018 wheat crop by 4.8 percent to 26.3 million tonnes mostly due to a larger harvested area.

The consultancy said in a statement the higher output would allow the country to export 17 million tonnes of wheat in the 2018/19 crop season. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Editing by Christian Schmollinger)
