SOFIA/CHISINAU. According to market players, a sowing delay of one month is to be expected in Moldova for this year's sunflower seed crop.

The persistently cool temperatures coupled with rainfall make it difficult for the farmers to work in the fields and there are repeated interruptions. This time last year, 70% of the acreage was already sown, but currently it only amounts to 10%. Quotations for prompt shipments from Moldova are EUR 1.14-1.18/kg DAP for bakery kernels and EUR 1.18-1.22/kg DAP for sunflower kernels, confection. Price indications for the new crop, meanwhile, are EUR 0.85-0.95/kg DAP and EUR 0.95-1.00/kg DAP Germany respectively.
