Ukraine produced a record 6.4 MMT of sunoil in the 2016/17 season


Sunseed crushing in Ukraine traditionally decreased toward the end of MY 2016/17. So, large and medium-sized crushers produced 153.4 KMT of sunoil in August 2017 that is down 51% from the previous month (312.82 KMT). However, owing to last year’s bumper sunseed crop, sunoil output was more than twice as large as a year ago even late in the crushing season (71.3 KMT was produced in August 2016).

In total, large and medium-sized crushers in Ukraine produced 5331.4 KMT of sunoil for the whole season (September-August 2016/17), or 46% more than a year ago (3650.7 KMT), reports UkrAgroConsult.

UkrAgroConsult’s estimate for 2016/17 sunoil output exceeds 6.4 MMT, including production by minor and medium-sized crushers.
