According to Oil World, sunflower seed export from Ukraine accelerated recent weeks and surpassed previous expectation.
During June 1-26, Ukraine shipped 1.64 mln tonnes of grains and oilseeds, according to statistics data.
Particularly, sunflower seed export amounted to about 460 thsd tonnes, up from 350 thsd tonnes supplied abroad in full month of May.
Given that sunflower seed export may reach 500 thsd tonnes in June, the overall shipments of the oilseed may be as high as 1 mln tonnes in January-June that will significantly surpass the result of the same period last year (41 thsd tonnes). Virtually whole volume was sent to the EU.
Ukraine may export 70 thsd tonnes of soybean and 10 thsd tonnes of rapeseed in June.
