Turkey: Oilseeds and Products Annual

Turkey’s Marketing Year (MY) 2019/20 total oilseeds production is expected to be about the same as last marketing year at 3 Million Metric Tons (MMT). Despite the efforts of the government to increase oilseeds production, Turkey continues to be import dependent for cooking oil and meal for the feed sector. Accordingly, in MY 2017/18 Turkey imported 655,000 MT of oilseed sunflowerseed, 931,000 MT of sunflowerseed meal and 503,000 MT of sunflowerseed oil to meet domestic and export demands. Turkey also continues to import large quantities of soybeans and soybean meal, with combined imports reaching a record of 3.3 MMT in MY 2017/18. MY 2018/19 olive oil production was lower than expected due to weather.
