Romania. Corn export potential is almost 2 times lower


UkrAgroConsult revised down its estimate of Romanian 2016/17 corn crop to 8750 KMT (-500 KMT compared to previous forecast).  Excessive air temperatures and lack of rains in the key producing regions of Romania (South and South-East) during the grain filling period provoked second in a row disastrous corn season in Romania.

Still, this estimate remains higher than 2015 corn crop due to high and locally record high yields in the Western and South-Western parts of Romania. Here precipitations amount corresponded and in some places (bordering with Hungary) exceeded multiyear norms.  

UkrAgroConsult decreased export forecast for 2016/17 by 500 KMT due to the lower corn supply which is estimated below the 5 year average for Romania.

Further prospects of the Black Sea grain market in the upcoming 2017/18 season will be discussed at the XIV International Conference “Black Sea Grain: Wind of Change”, which will take place on April 5-6, 2017 in InterContinental hotel, Kiev, Ukraine.
