How much does summer affect the price of sunflower kernels? [swpm_protected visible_to=”logged_in_users_only” custom_msg=’This content is for members only. Please <a href=>login</a> or <a href=>sign up now</a>.’]

At present, the price of sunflower seeds and sunflower kernels in China is relatively stable. The market shows that this product has strong seasonality. The price in winter is relatively high, and the price in summer will fall due to the influence of weather and demand. Winter is also the peak shopping season for Arab countries in the Middle East and for Chinese people who snack for relaxation during the Chinese New Year. As a result, prices are higher in winter than in summer, and high temperatures in summer discourage large stockpiles of sunflower seeds. People don’t want to buy large quantities at this period of the year. The market expects a downward trend in prices as summer approaches. Importers can prepare their stocks during this period.
