Ukraine Sunseed crop decline affected September crushing volume.

The start of a new season features growth of sunseed processing. So, sunoil production by large and medium-sized crushers totaled 345.7 KMT in September 2017, or twice as much as in the previous month (171.6 KMT). However, a sunseed crop decline in the current 2017/18 season prevented sunoil producers from surpassing the September 2016 record (399.8 KMT): the product’s output fell by 13.5% against MY 2016/17.
