Russia. Export prices for milling wheat increased by $1 last week


Export prices for Russian milling wheat of new crop in the Novorossiysk port closed the reporting period up another $1/MT at $186‑188/MT FOB (12.5%- protein wheat for July-August delivery). The prices were supported by strengthening wheat of American and European origins and of wheat from Ukraine. A later start of the harvest in Black Sea countries delays the arrival of new-crop grain into the market, thereby forcing buyers to pay more for near-term deliveries.

Uncertainty about VAT is an additional constraint for Russian market players now. This factor hampers domestic and foreign sales for August-September.
