(Dow Jones) -- Ukraine's stocks of exportable wheat may run out within weeks, according to the country's agriculture ministry, meaning it could become the first leading producer to impose trade restrictions that could lead to a further damaging spike in world food prices.

Kiev said its stocks would be depleted by around Nov. 15 to Nov. 20.
