NUR-SULTAN/MOSCOW. In its latest oilseed report, market analyst Oil World reckons that flaxseed production in Kazakhstan and Russia will...

... reach new highs despite the drought in some regions. The reason for this is the larger areas sown for the 2020/2021 crop, which will help to compensate for possible yield reductions.

The experts expect a production increase of 9% to 1.1 million metric tonnes in Kazakhstan and 17% to 750,000 metric tonnes in Russia. The world crop is currently estimated at 3.35 million metric tonnes, which is an increase of 7.7% over last year.
