First rise in OSR area since 2012

The English area of oilseed rape in 2018 is estimated at 564Kha according to the provisional results of Defra’s June survey of agriculture. This is 41Kha larger than in 2017 (523Kha) and 9Kha below estimates from the AHDB  Planting and Variety Survey published last month.

This rise in English oilseed rape (OSR) area would be the first since 2012, following six consecutive years of declines. However, the anticipated English area in 2018 is still well below the peak of 713Kha in 2012, but is likely to be due to more favourable planting conditions in late summer/early autumn 2017 compared with the same period in 2016.

 

With this year’s OSR harvest almost complete, and yields looking only slightly below average following the dry summer, English production could be expected to be similar to last year at 2mt, according to AHDB.
