Analysts of UkrAgroConsulting note that 2016-2017 will be remembered by a record rape crop. Agrarians harvested only 1.2 million tons, which is 32% less than in the 2015-2016 season. Three consecutive years, there has been a decline in the amount of oilseed processing, a decrease in production and export of products. At the end of last season, Western partners sold only 1026 thousand tons of rapeseed.
Ukrainian oil processing companies were not ready to purchase raw materials. They had to reduce production.
This year there is another picture. Rapeseed harvesting has just begun, but it is already clear that the harvest will be good. And this means that in the season 2017-2018 there will be a record jump in the production of products for the domestic market and an increase in exports.
More detailed information can be found on the website of UkrAgroConsulting or visit the V International Conference "Black Sea Oil Trade", which is scheduled for September 19, 2017 at the Kiev Hotel Hilton.

During the discussions, different topics will be discussed. Here you can hear the forecast of prices for 2018, whether there will be new drivers, whether it is possible to defeat the black market.
