International Prices

Wheat

Global export prices mostly posted solid declines during March. Pressure continued to come from ample nearby supplies and a generally positive outlook for the next world harvest. The pace of US exports continued to disappoint traders, and this contributed to price weakness for US winter wheats, but US spring wheat export values rose as wintry weather fostered ideas that seeding of the 2019/20 crop could be delayed. EU prices were supported by accelerating exports, including recent sizeable sales to Egypt, Algeria and Saudi Arabia, while, towards the end of the month, new season prices were underpinned by concerns about a dry outlook for some EU crops. Tightening export availabilities buoyed spot quotations in the Black Sea region.
