Bulgaria: Oilseeds and Products Annual Report

Bulgarian farmers are expanding the planted areas under oilseed crops in the new season MY2017/18 led by sunflower seeds. Following mixed results from oilseeds in MY2016/17 with excellent rapeseed production, a lower than expected sunflower crop and a disappointing soybean crop, most producers expect a recovery in sunflower and soybean yields and a decline from the record high rapeseeds yields this year. Total oilseed area is forecast to increase by two to three per cent and provided that the weather cooperates, could be four to five per cent or higher growth in production to 2.4 MMT.
