The development of the Regulation for Oilseed Crops is underway, which aims to establish rules and procedures for production, transport, storage, processing, import and export of oilseeds, in order to structure the value chain of these crops to meet national and international demand.
The oilseeds considered to be a priority for the present five-year period are Soybeans, Sesame, and Sunflower.

With the approval and implementation of the Regulation for Oilseed Crops(in preparation) it is projected:

  1. Increased production and productivity of oilseed crops;
  2. Greater availability of inputs and new technologies for producers;
  3. Improve the stability and competitiveness of national oilseed production;
  4. Stimulate the growth of the local oilseed processing industry;
  5. Strengthen discipline and legality along the value chain
  6. Strengthen enforcement capacity;
  7. Saving foreign exchange that is currently used to import raw materials for the oil and feed industry;
  8. Increase the contribution to the balance of payments;
  9. Reduce the dependence of oilseed prices on international prices;
  10. Increase the participation of producers in the governance of the subsector, who will better defend their interests;
  11. Raise revenues to finance activities to promote and develop the oilseed value chain;
  12. Greater profitability of the actors.

This process involved consultation with actors in the oilseed value chain, including AMIA, AIOPA, FONPA, UNAC, AAM., MEF,MIC, MAEFP, MITSS, MJCR.
