During the course of last week, prices for Eastern European sunflower rose slightly following the current strength noted in the soya market. Planting in Rumania and Bulgaria has now virtually been completed, and weather conditions have so far been ideal for a good start to the 2016 crop.

Statistics just released suggest that total acreage planted with sunflower in these two countries is 5-7% higher than 2015, which, when added to the large crops forecast to be grown in Russia and Ukraine (which are currently taking advantage of the good weather conditions in those regions), tend to suggest a big 2016 European sunflower crop. Further plantings in Ukraine and in Russia could still be undertaken if (as seems to be likely) weather conditions continue to be good.
