First new crop heads for Europe

Date Added: 11/07/2014

United Oilseeds has loaded and exported its first boat of new crop oilseed rape out of Ipswich heading for Rotterdam.

The vessel MV Olza is carrying 2650 tonnes of oilseed rape to Europe. The majority of oilseed rape on board has been purchased from United Oilseeds growers.

The rapeseed has come from farms in the South East and East Anglia where harvest is well and truly underway with farmers reporting yields of 3 to 4t/ha.

United Oilseeds are keen to start an early export campaign to take advantage of early market opportunities. Export trade will no doubt increase over the coming weeks as Harvest 2014 progresses throughout the UK.
