MOSCOW, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — In the season of 2011/2012, Russia plans to export up to 200,000 of sugar, Russian Minister of Agriculture Yelena Skrynnik said at the opening ceremony of the 13th Russian agro-industrial exhibition “Golden Autumn” in Moscow on Friday.
“Russia has become an exporter of sugar for the first time this year, 50,000 tonnes of sugar have been already supplied abroad,” she said. All in all, as the minister said, seven records have been set in plant-growing: four production and three export ones in the current year.
According to her, a record-high harvest of sugar-beet - up to 40 million tonnes, sun-flower - 8 million tonnes, soy-bean -- over 1.450 million tonnes, as well as rape - about 1.1 million tonnes.
Besides, Skrynnik informed that this year the export of sun flower oil will increase by 25 percent to 500,000 tonnes.
Supplies of grain abroad in September in the volume of 3.8 million tonnes became another export record.
