UK Wheat Exports

As was expected April was another decent month for UK wheat exports with 279,000 MT leaving our shores for mostly EU destinations. Spain was the largest home taking more than 50% of that.

That brings cumulative 2009/10 marketing year (July/June) exports to 2.01 MMT, leaving us on course to attain, or maybe even slightly exceed Defra's export target for the current season.

April barley exports were 95,000 MT, bringing total marketing year to date shipments to 913,000 MT against a Defra target of 1.2 MMT.
