Russia exports peas at record high pace

05.10.2016

In August 2016 Russia exported record high monthly volume of peas – 130.8 KMT, reports UkrAgroConsult. Over the first 2 months of 2016/17 export shipments of peas rose by 72% to 240 KMT against 139.3 KMT in July-August of 2015/16.

Turkey remained traditional importer of Russian peas over this period, importing 150 KMT – more than third of all purchases made in 2015/16. Though, it is known that major part of Russian peas exported to Turkey goes to Indian market due to logistical factors. In the same time Russia increases peas exports to Indian market as well.

Over 2 months of 2016/17 Russia exported more than half of the total volume shipped in this destination in 2015/16. EU countries as well as Pakistan and Bangladesh remain among the key peas export markets for Russian peas.
