Argentina: sunflower seed harvesting campaign goes in full blast - Rosario Stock Exchange




“New harvest volumes of Argentinean sunflower seed started entering the market. Up to January 18, sunflower harvesting rates were high. There was 19% of the sunseed area already harvested with the average yield of 1.69 t/ha. Even though, the harvesting rates are quite similar to the last harvest year, they are definitively above the average index of the recent 5 years”, - said Patricia Bergero, Assistant Director of Information and Economic Studies, the Rosario Stock Exchange, Argentina to journalists of APK-Inform Agency. There is a consensus among several market sources that sunseed harvest in Argentina in 2012/13 MY may reach nearly 3.2 mln tonnes. According to the Rosario Stock Exchange, in 2012/13 MY sunflower seed exports may be less than 40 thsd tonnes, while sunoil and sunpellets exports may total 900 thsd tonnes and 700 thsd tonnes, respectively.
