Soybean oil production by Ukrainian large and medium-sized crushers amounted to 9.9 KMT in August 2017, or 14.6% less than in the previous month (11.6 KMT) and down 18.2% from August 2016 (12.1 KMT). In total, 159.2 KMT of soybean oil was made in MY 2016/17 (September-August) against 176.2 KMT a year ago, reports UkrAgroConsult.

As a reminder, the drop in crushing happened in view of a bumper soybean crop, which reached 2.9 MMT in the 2016/17 season.
