Romania to replace Ukraine in European rapeseed market


Romanian farmers have finished rapeseed harvesting. UkrAgroConsult notes that 2016 rapeseed harvesting campaign was the most productive ever in Romania.

Over more than 20 years rapeseed acreage in Romania has been expanded to the third largest acreage over the reporting period. In autumn 2015 sowing was carried out at the optimum seeding time. In general, wintering of this oil crop was successful, and the following weather conditions led to early ripening and, correspondingly, early harvesting.

According to current data, UkrAgroConsult forecasts rapeseed production at a record high level. This year Romania will enter top ten world’s largest producers of this oil crop. Besides, Romania becomes the leading rapeseed producer in the Black Sea region, surpassing Ukrainian farmers.
