Drought Seen Damaging Sunflower Seeds in Black Sea Area

Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Dry and hot weather in July and early August will lead to a reduced sunflower harvest in the Black Sea countries, according to UkrAgroConsult.

The Kiev-based agriculture researcher lowered its harvest estimate about 10 percent to 19 million metric tons from 21 million tons forecast in June, according to an e-mailed statement. UkrAgroConsult may cut its forecast further should the heat persist.

The Black Sea countries -- Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Kazakhstan -- reaped a record sunflower seed harvest of 22.5 million tons last year.
