„Rapeseed under pressure, but still the best oil crop in Hungary”

The annual profitability figures from the Hungarian Institute of Agricultural Economics Nonprofit Ltd. (AKI) highlight very well the challenging production conditions outside in the fields. Even rapeseed lost some interests because of lower yields in 2018/2019, it has still a high attractivity in comparison with wheat, maize, sunflower and soya. During the analyzed period 2015 – 2019 rapeseed deliver an average income per season of 208 €/ha (without subsidies), which bring it on the 2nd place behind maize (228 €/ha). With a plus of 47 €/ha in comparison with sunflower, rapeseed underline again its position as the most valuable oil crop.
