Russia's sunflower oil export tax to decline in September

MOSCOW, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Russia has set its export tax for sunflower oil at 8,621.3 roubles ($143.4) per tonne for September, down from 15,987.1 roubles in August, the agriculture ministry said on Thursday.

The September tax is based on an indicative price of $1,583.0 a tonne, the ministry said.

Russia changed the formula it uses for calculating the sunflower oil export tax in July to support shipments against a backdrop of a strong rouble.
