Ukraine sunseed exports could fall by at least 29% if ports stay open, APK-Inform says

KYIV, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Ukraine's sunflower seed exports in the new 2022/23 September-August season could fall by at least 29% to 1.1 to 1.2 million tonnes if its Black Sea ports remain open, analyst APK-Inform said on Wednesday.

Alternatively, if the ports are shut, exports of sunseeds may be preferred over grain, with 2022/23 seed exports seen rising to up to 3 million tonnes from 1.63 million last season, APK-Inform said.

Before the Russian invasion, which Moscow calls a "special military operation", Ukraine was the world's largest sunflower seed grower and sunflower oil exporter. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; editing by Jason Neely)
