Ukrainian Sunflower-Seed Crop Forecast Cut at UkrAgroConsult
Ukraine’s sunflower-seed crop is poised to fall to 8.9 million metric tons this year because of dryness and record heat, UkrAgroConsult said.
The country harvested 9.3 million tons of the seeds in 2011, the Kiev-based researcher said yesterday in an e-mailed statement. The Russian sunflower-seed harvest will drop to 7.5 million tons from 9.5 million tons last year, UkrAgroConsult said.
