Russia. Export prices for milling wheat grew last week


Following eight weeks of a decline, export prices for Russian milling wheat are at last on the rise now. Prices for Russian wheat with 12.5% and 11.5% protein closed the week on average up $2‑3/MT at $184‑186/MT and $174‑176/MT, respectively, FOB Novorossiysk port for September-October delivery, reports UkrAgroConsult.

The export market was supported by a few factors. Firstly, strong demand for Russian wheat against the background of arisen infrastructure problems. The second bullish factor was a strengthening rouble. Its exchange rate against the dollar has grown by 5% over the last month.

However, the strengthening of the Russian currency does not reflect on grain exports yet. According to preliminary information of market participants, 23% more of wheat was supplied to foreign markets in Augu compared to the same time last year.
