The decline in crushing can be attributed to weak demand from millers due to disparity tracking weak mustard oil prices. From aforementioned crushing figures, rapeseed meal production is likely to be at 5.6 MMT as compared to 6.04 MMT previous year. Upon slow crushing of mustard this year, rapeseed meal export is likely to decline for the year 2023-24.
