Ukraine. July rapeseed exports hit a three-year high


Ukraine exported 124.3 KMT of rapeseed in the first month of the new 2017/18 season, or twice as much as in July 2016 (61.3 KMT). Such an active start of export sales is observed for the first time in the last three seasons, reports UkrAgroConsult.

European countries continued to be the key buyers of Ukrainian rapeseed in July 2016/17 (66% of total exports). Among them, the greatest volumes were shipped to Germany and Portugal.

The new marketing year promises to be more productive in the rapeseed market. This year’s rapeseed crop will be up at 2.1-2.2 MMT that will enable Ukraine to raise its export potential by almost 60% against last year.
