According to official preliminary information of the State Statistics Service of Ukraine on oilseed production in 2018, the total crop of sunflower seed amounted to 14.16 MMT, up 15.7% from last year. Soybean production was up 14.4% year-on-year at 4.46 MMT. The total rapeseed crop increased by 25.1%, to 2.75 MMT, reports UkrAgroConsult.

The sunflower crop rose not only due to expanded plantings (+1.7%), but also because of its higher yield (+13.9%). In soybeans, an acreage decrease (-12.8%) was offset by a gain in yield (+31%). An opposite situation is seen in rapeseed: expanded plantings (+31.9%) with a lower yield (-5%).
