Commodities

Turkey’s soybean planted area estimate for MY 2017/18 is 22,000 hectares and production is projected at 85,000 MT, down due to the increase in cotton planting in the Cukurova Region. Turkey continues to be one of the leading import markets in the world for soybeans and soybean meal, due to increased domestic consumption and lack of domestic production. Accordingly, Turkey imported 2.27 MMT of soybeans and 787,000 MT of soybean meal in MY 2016/17.
