Sunflower oil. This season’s pace of sunoil production in Ukraine is somewhat slower than a year ago. So, large and medium-sized crushers produced 417.1 KMT of sunoil in March 2018, i.e. 2.5% less than in the previous month (427.8 KMT) and down 19.3% from March 2017 (516.9 KMT).

In general, sunseed crushing stays at a high level this season, but September-March 2017/18 sunoil output was down 10.2% from last marketing year, which was the most successful one, at 3092.4 KMT versus 3442.6 KMT in September-March 2016/17.

Rapeseed oil. Rapeseed oil production fell to 0.229 KMT in March 2018, down 71% from February 2018 and down 84% from March 2017 (1.417 KMT). 

The first nine months of the current marketing year 2017/18 saw a 23% year-on-year rise in production. So, crushers produced 81.2 KMT of rape oil in July-March 2017/18 against 65.8 KMT in the same period last season. As a reminder, this resulted from active rapeseed processing in August-October 2017. Rape oil production declined dramatically in the following five months of the season, to at most 1 KMT a month. However, rape oil output in July-March 2017/18 is still higher than in the whole of MY 2016/17 (66.7 KMT).
