EU sunflowers: yield increases offset decline in production area

Berlin, (lifePR) - Despite a slight reduction in EU sunflower area, the EU Commission anticipates sunflowerseed output to grow. Especially Romania and Bulgaria are expected to see higher yields.

According to figures just published by the EU Commission, the 2017 sunflower area in the EU-28 dipped to 4.2 million hectares, slightly below the previous year's level. While Romania and Hungary both expanded their sunflower areas by around 2 per cent, Bulgaria and France reduced theirs. Nevertheless, the EU Commission expects sunflower output to rise. The forecast was lowered 1 per cent to 9 million tonnes from May, but the figure is still 5 per cent up on 2016. According to Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft mbH (AMI), the main reason for the projected production increases is higher yield expectations. Romania and Bulgaria are expected to see a more than 15 per cent growth in production from the previous year, whereas Spanish output is anticipated to increase by around 11 per cent.
