Bulgaria: Oilseeds and Products Update

The first tentative post-harvest data on 2015 oilseeds crops showed rapeseed production in line with AgSofia’s earlier forecast, however, the sunflower crop declined due to the summer heatwave. Sunflower harvest has been completed at 96% as of October 30 and production is estimated at 1.7 MMT. Soybean crop had much higher planted area due to new subsidies this year but the lack of farming experience and summer heat/dryness resulted in a low crop, currently estimated by AgSofia at 40,000 MT.
