According to the polling conducted by experts of APK-Inform Agency, agrarians of the Crimea expect for the low harvest volumes of sunflower seed.
According to the market participants, the oilseed yield will reduce by 10-20% compared with the previous year. To date dry weather conditions occupied the peninsula territory, which have rather adverse impact on sunflower seed areas.
