Turkey’s marketing year (MY) 2021/22 sunflower seed area and production is estimated at 760,000 hectares and 1.75 million metric tons (MMT) respectively. Turkey continued imports of sunflower seeds to meet stable demand. Accordingly, during the first eleven months (Sept-July) of MY 2020/21, oilseed sunflower seed imports were 899,000 MT, sunflower seed meal imports were about 788,000 MT, and sunflower seed oil imports were 732,000 MT. Turkey’s sunflower seed oil imports and exports have increased significantly in recent years due to additional capacity for refining and re-exporting. Turkey continues to be negatively affected by high domestic oil prices.
