KIEV (Reuters) – Export prices for Ukrainian wheat for milling have risen by $3 to $6 a ton in the last week due to uncertainty about the harvest in the Black Sea region after bad weather, agricultural consultancy APK-Inform said this week. Monday.
Soft 2021 milling wheat at 12.5% protein traded between $225 and $232 free on board (FOB) in the Black Sea, the consultancy said in a report.
Feed wheat prices were stable at $217-224 fob.
Ukraine exported 44.6 million tonnes of grain throughout the 2020/21 season, with the government expecting exports to increase to 56 million tonnes in the 2021/22 season, thanks to a larger harvest.
Ukraine said it could harvest about 30 million tonnes of wheat this year, up from 25 million in 2020.
APK-Inform said corn export prices fell $3 last week to $263-270 a ton fob and prices for Ukrainian barley rose $5 to $200-215 a ton fob in the Black Sea.
