Ukraine 2021/22 sunseed, sunoil output and export could rise -APK-Inform
KYIV, April 17 (Reuters) - Ukraine, the world's largest sunflower oil exporter, is likely to harvest 16.4 million tonnes of sunflower seed in 2021, almost 15% more than in 2020, the consultancy said on Saturday.
In a report, APK-Inform said most of the output - 16.18 million tonnes - would be crushed in Ukraine, and 240,000 tonnes could be exported in the 2021/22 September-August season.
The higher harvest will allow refineries to increase sunoil production by 16.5% to 7 million tonnes, it said. Around 6.54 million tonnes of sunoil will be exported in 2021/22 versus 5.6 million tonnes in 2020/21.
Ukraine is also likely to harvest 3.86 million tonnes of soy beans and 2.51 million tonnes of rapeseed in 2021, APK-Inform said. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
