Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Ukrainian sunflower-oil production will rise 5 percent to 3.25 million metric tons in the current marketing year from the prior period, according to Ukroliyaprom, which represents local oil processors.
The sunflower-seed harvest will increase 18 percent to about 8.5 million tons, Stepan Kapshuk, the group’s president, said in a statement on the website of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation today. The marketing year began Sept. 1.
Sunflower-seed exports probably will come to 500,000 tons for the year, the statement showed.
