Ukraine harvested 900 KMT of rapeseed


Rapeseed harvesting campaign continues to lag behind the last year’s pace. By July, 25 Ukraine had gathered rapeseed from 348.5 Th ha, which was 76% of the intended area (total area – 456 KMT). Nearly 907.7 KMT had been harvested with average yield – 2.6 MT/ha.

By the same date last year Ukrainian farmers had threshed 556 Th ha and obtained 1396 KMT of rapeseed with average yield – 2.51 MT/ha.

Last week AgMin revised its estimate of total rapeseed area of 2016/17 season and lowered it to 456 Th ha. Considering the revised data, UkrAgroConsult reduced its estimate of rapeseed production in 2016/17 to 1150-1200 KMT, which is still quite an optimistic expectation.
