International Prices

World wheat export prices edged slightly higher during the past month, with the IGC GOI wheat sub-Index climbing by 1.8 percent. Upside was mostly linked to concerns about unfavourable conditions for 2018/19 crops in some areas, especially drought and spells of very cold weather in the US. However, advances in global prices were capped by more than ample nearby export availabilities and strong competition, with the Black Sea region continuing to capture a large share of demand. Although some logistical difficulties were reported in Ukraine, there was little sign that the pace of Russia’s shipments was slowing.
