NEW DELHI: The export during September 2017 is reported at 115,083 tonnes compared to 109,309 tonnes in September 2016 i.e. up by 5%, as per data provided by The Solvent Extractors' Association of India.

In last Six months, the export of oilmeals improved compared to the previous year, thanks to good monsoon, better oilseeds production and price parity. It may be also be noted that India faced drought years during 2014-15 and 2015-16, which lead to lower production of oilseeds which affected export of oilmeals to the lowest level, however with good monsoon last year, export has revived to some extent.
