Russia Oil Seed Crop
The total oilseed crop in Russia exceeded 7.0 million metric tons (mmt). The official sunflower seed crop was 6.4 mmt in 2005, marking a record high for the last 15 years. Despite a 20-percent export duty, Russia is forecast to export 420,000 metric tons of seeds. Crush of sunflower seeds is forecast to increase to 5.3 mmt, providing a base for increased domestic consumption and exports of meal and oil.

Exports of sunflowerseeds and sunflowerseed oil In October – November, Russia exported 140,400 metric tons of sunflower seeds, a recordhigh volume for the last 5 years in this period. Exports in November were 2.4 times stronger than in October and reached 85,400 metric tons (mt). In December, exports of sunflower seeds were said to maintain at the same level as in November, but official customs data are not available yet. The main destinations of sunflower seed exports in October – November were the Netherlands (39,300 mt), Spain (22,100 mt), Turkey (21,100 mt), Greece (9,600 mt), and Italy (more than 7,800 mt). Some experts forecast that total sunflower seed exports may reach 500,000 metric tons in MY 2005. Given that world oilseed prices are going down, the Russian 20-perc ent export duty will curb exports, and sunflower seed exports in MY 2005 are forecast at 420,000 metric tons. In the longer run, growing world demand for vegetable oil for fuel may stimulate both Russian sunflower seed and sunflower seed oil exports either to be processed into fuel, or to replace rapeseed oil and some other fuel-targeted vegetable oils. The role of international companies in Russian oilseeds industry increased, and they are more flexible in finding international markets for their products.

Exports of sunflower seed meal

Crush of sunflower seeds has increased, and sunflower seed meal production is forecast to increase to 2.0 mmt, up 18 percent from last year, despite a smaller extraction rate. According to customs data, in MY 2004 Russia exported 495,000 metric tons of sunflower seed meal, and MY 2005 exports are forecast to exceed 530,000 metric tons. In October 2005, Russia already exported 52,500 metric tons of sunflower seed meal. Half of meal exports were sold to Spain and Italy, while the rest were shipped to Egypt, Cyprus, Israel, France, Azerbaijan, and Greece.
