Black Sea region – world's largest wheat supplier


In the current season the Black Sea region has become the key player in the world wheat market by achieving record high productivity during the 2016 harvesting campaign. No doubt, in the 2016/17 marketing year the region will confirm the leadership as world largest wheat supplier, reports UkrAgroConsult.

UkrAgroConsult informs that Ukraine started the current season with record high grain exports, mainly owing to wheat, as corn shipments to the world ag market recovered only in October due to considerable harvesting delay.

Kazakhstan has just entered the world market with a new crop grain. And the market also expects record high shipments over the past five years. During the first month of the current marketing year exports confirmed this trend.

Russia currently raises most of the questions.
