Domestic Bulgarian sunflower seed market is characterized by low activity, contracting is virtually absent. Prices were announced only in five regions of the country as well as last week, and in fact they are only indicative for the cost of new crop sunflower. As of August 22 2016, the average price for sunflower remains unchanged for third consecutive week. Sunflower harvesting started in some parts of the country. Decline in yield is expected due to the negative impact of drought in July that most likely will cause the growth of domestic prices for sunflower.
