Romania shipped record high volumes of barley to foreign markets in the 2015/16 season


In June 2016 Romania considerably increased barley exports, which reached 484.7 KMT. This volume was 4 times higher than the previous record for this month, set in June 2015 (123.7 KMT). Key buyers in June were Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Libya and Tunisia.

Thus, due to record high volumes of export in June total barley exports from Romania in 2015/16 (July-June) reached a new record 1990 KMT against the previous record, set in 2014/15 (1709 KMT).

According to Romanian market operators, in July-August 2016 volumes of barley exports remained at high level due to lower supply from other EU key barley exporters – France and Germany.
