Romania decreased barley exports by 11%


According to port data, in January 2018/19 Romania exported 22.5 KMT of barley. This was 170% higher than in the same month of 2018 (8.34 KMT) and 100% higher than in the same month of 2016/17 (11.2 KMT). In January 2019 Lybia and Lebanon were the key destinations for Romanian barley.

Thus, in July-January 2018/19 Romania shipped 804.4 KMT of barley, which was 11% lower than over the same period of last season due to lower export potential. Compared to July-January 2016/17 exports are 4% higher, reports UkrAgroConsult.

This season Spain, Iran and Jordan are absent from major buyers of Romanian barley - though, exports to Saudi Arabia are 43% higher than last season.
