EU sunflowers: yield increases offset decline in production area
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.
