What factors affect the purchase prices and sales of sunflower

First of all, the purchase prices for a given crop depend on the volume of production: a large harvest creates an excess supply, which affects its final price.

There is a clear pattern in the sale of sunflower: the cost of this oilseed in Ukraine is the highest from the new year until the beginning of summer, the decline occurs in late summer and early winter.  That is, the price of sunflower is high when the stocks on the market are decreasing, but when there are offers of a new crop, the price decreases.

Sunflower oil producers also influence the pricing of sunflower: approximately 95% of the grain is processed in factories within our country.

The price of sunflower is determined by a number of factors:

  1. The projected volume of the harvest in the sunflower-producing countries;
  2. The cost of other oilseeds such as soybeans and rapeseed;
  3. Meteorological conditions;
  4. The prices for oil and meal, which are sunflower processing products.
  5. Prices for other types of oils such as soybean, rapeseed and palm oil.
  6. Oil prices.

How to sell sunflower for export on your own and with the help of a trader

In general, we do not recommend dealing with the export of sunflower, since in Ukraine this crop is subject to an export duty of 17%.  In addition, in some countries, such as Turkey, you may face additional import duties.  That will make the export of this crop unprofitable.

Nevertheless, if you decide to enter the international market, it can be difficult, because you should thoroughly know the rules of world trade, adequately assess the volume and quality of sunflower, since the grain must meet international standards.  “G.R.  Agro advises against exporting small consignments of sunflower because of the high costs of transportation and various export operations.

An equally important step is finding a buyer.  Finding a reliable and trusted counterparty right away is a difficult task.  It is necessary to carefully approach the choice of a partner and understand all the intricacies of negotiation, understand the text of contracts in order to insure yourself against various unpleasant situations and pitfalls.

As you can see, it is quite difficult to profitably sell sunflower for export directly, you need knowledge about the specifics of trade abroad and the ability to profitably negotiate with international counterparties.

To minimize your risks and increase the efficiency of selling goods abroad, for example, we advise you to contact “G.R. Agro”.
