Russia. Rapeseed crushing up 23% on the year


Rape oil production gained 23% in MY 2017/18 (July-February), reaching 258.9 KMT versus 210.3 KMT a year ago. It reversed a downward trend seen in the last two seasons, reports UkrAgroConsult.

32.4 KMT of rape oil was produced in Russia in February 2018 versus 30 KMT in the previous month and 22 KMT in February 2017. Monthly production volumes of rape oil have steadily been up year-on-year since the beginning of MY 2017/18, expect for a minor downturn in January. This was contributed to by a rapeseed crop increase in 2017.

The same trends are seen in rapeseed crushing in Ukraine. Rape oil production is high up 25.7% in the first eight months of the 2017/18 season compared to the previous one. In July-February Ukrainian oil and fat industry produces 81.0 KMT of rape oil against 64.5 KMT a year ago due to more active crushing of rapeseed in August-September 2017.
