EU Grain Exports Up 60 Pct

With just one week of the marketing year left to report on, the EU had granted 30.4 MMT of grain export licences, up 60% from the level of 18.9 MMT a year ago.

Of that total, soft wheat export licences amounted to 22 MMT.

Unsurprisingly, grain import licences have been issued on substantially less volume this season, 57% lower at 11.3 MMT from 27.4 MMT a year ago.
