Sunflower is grown on more than 11 million hectares in Europe and is used for food, feed, fuel, and industrial purposes. Major sunflower producing countries, such as France, Spain, Romania, and Bulgaria reduced the harvested areas, except Hungary, which increased its area by 5.5%. Italy, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Croatia, and the Czech Republic had no changes in sunflower plantings in 2016. The demand for sunflower meal is expected to be lower than usual, owing to less crush and availability. However, the demand is still stable due to projected better competitiveness compared to the rapeseed meal.
