SOFIA/MOSCOW. According to European Commission data, between 1 July 2020 and 24 January 2021, the EU imported a total of 679,000 mt of sunflower seeds from...

... third countries - of which 40.4% or 274,316 mt came from Russia. This means that weekly imports from Russia have fallen to 2,500 mt since the turn of the year; in the second half of 2020, weekly shipments were still around 10,000 mt. To protect the domestic market, the Russian government raised the export duty on sunflower seeds to 30% in early January. Meanwhile, the state statistics service Rosstat confirmed the year-on-year decline of sunflower seed supplies in the hands of agricultural enterprises by 33% to 1.49 million mt as of the end of December 2020.
