By July, 21 Ukrainian farmers had threshed 312.0 Th ha of rapeseed, which was 68.4% of the plan (456 Th ha). 805 KMT was harvested with average productivity - 2.58 MT/ha.

Despite the fact that harvesting progress is behind the last year`s pace, productivity is higher. By the same date in 2015 nearly 414 Th ha had been threshed and 977 KMT of rapeseed obtained with average productivity – 2.36 MT/ha.

Considering high productivity, this year we expect that farmers will gather 1150-1200 KMT of rapeseed.
