March USDА report: oilseed production estimates for Black Sea countries
In the March report the USDA raised its forecast for 2016/17 Black Sea sunseed production to 26811 KMT (up 120 KMT) due to an increase in Turkey’s output to 1320 KMT. The soybean harvest figure was, on the contrary, lowered to 7479 KMT (down 20 KMT) also because of crop forecast adjustments for Turkey, reports UkrAgroConsult.
Thus, the soybean harvest in the country is estimated at 100 KMT against 120 KMT stated in the February report. Rapeseed production in the Black Sea region was left unchanged at 2721 KMT.
