Russia. Rapeseed oil production on the rise early in the season


20.7 KMT of rape oil was produced in Russia in August 2017 against 27.1 KMT in July 2017 and 18.9 KMT in August 2016. In total, rape oil production amounted to 47.8 KMT in July-August 2017/18 that is up 6.2% from the same time last year (45 KMT).

Its growth was made possible due to a gain in the Y2017 rapeseed crop. This trend is expected to persist throughout the marketing year, UkrAgroConsult notes.
