Ukraine. Concerns about a sharp decrease in sunflower plantings are not justified


Sunflower planting is over in Ukraine and the data obtained confirm UkrAgroConsult’s opinion that this crop will still be given special attention. As a reminder, sunflower became the number one in the fields in 2016/17 season, having replaced wheat there.

UkrAgroConsult confirms its forecast for sunflower plantings at 6300 - 6400 Th ha.

The state of sunflower crops is not so bad at the moment. Moreover, no heat similar to last year’s one (39-40оС) is predicted now.

Thus, this acreage will allow producing an excellent sunseed crop.
