With favorable weather, the oilseed harvest could surpass 30 million tons. Over the next three to four years, Russia aims to boost oilseed yields by 4.5 - 6.5 million tons, necessitating an additional 1.5-2.5 million hectares. The primary goal is to supply the domestic market, as Russia maintains a ban on certain oilseed exports.
