Egypt to Increase Sunflower, Soybean and Corn Planting in 2024

Egypt plans to plant 250,000 feddans (1 feddan equals 1.038 acres) of sunflower seeds next year, up from 90,000 feddans this year, the government said in a statement.

Next year, Egypt’s corn planting area will increase five times year-on-year to 500,000 feddans, aimed at increasing domestic feed production.

Soybean acreage will also be higher than the 150,000 feddans planted this year, but the government did not give a specific forecast.

Note: 1 feddan = about 1.038 acres
