Strategie Grains sees 2020 European rapeseed plantings at 5.94 million hectares

October 7, 2019 |

In France, Reuters reports that Strategie Grains expects European rapeseed planted area to have fallen by 8% against the five-year average to 5.94 million hectares, but the area is still 7% higher than the area harvested this year. Farmers have been struggling with weather damage as well as performance as European regulations limit the inputs they’re permitted to use. With just shy of 6 million hectares, the consultancy estimates biodiesel production to reach 19.3 million metric tons in 2020 compared to 16.9 million tons in 2019 and 20 million tons this year.
