Ukraine: rapeseed crop will hit a lower high 12 August, 2019 at 17:08

The beginning of the new 2019/20 season and the completion of rapeseed harvest in Ukraine make prospects for the newly started marketing year a topical issue.

Forecasts for the 2019 rapeseed crop are sinking due to a lower actual yield than expected. Despite favorable sowing conditions in the fall of 2018 and high winter survival rates, this year’s hot, dry June became a predominant adverse factor for rapeseed production.

According to real-time data, rapeseed harvest was almost 100% complete as of August 8 (1241.7 Th ha harvested out of the 1257.4 Th ha, +28.7% from last year). The crop amounts to 3058.4 KMT (+21%) with a yield of 2.46 MT/ha (-6%), reports UkrAgroConsult.

Taking into account last season’s experience of raising crop estimates, UkrAgroConsult leaves its original rape acreage estimate unchanged. Despite a yield decrease, this will allow growers to harvest a record crop.

The rapeseed market’s export potential will be reduced as well as the crush volume.
