Russia. Linseed exports will reach record level in the current season

08.09.2016

In July 2016 linseed exports from Russia reached 11.4 KMT, which was 62.4% less than in June 2016, but 58.3% more than in July 2015.

Linseed export shipments in season 2015/16 (September-July) were record high at 414.0 KMT compared to 294.4 KMT last season. As a reminder, such results were obtained owing to high linseed production at about 0.5 MMT in the 2015/16 marketing year.

According to UkrAgroConsult, Russia may export record high volumes of linseed in the current season.

EU countries are the main buyers. This season the share of European countries is more than 70% of total linseed exports, about 17% were exported to Turkey, and more than 4% - to China.
