And given the bean (1.36 million tons), flour (0,35 million tons) and sales to the countries of the EEU (0.98 mln t) total volume of deliveries abroad is estimated at 56 million tonnes, down 37 million tonnes from a year earlier.

the increase in the production and export of grain from Russia creates serious competition in the markets for traditional exporters. Last year's record grain harvest in Russia collapsed, wheat prices on the world market, so analysts are now closely watching forecasts and harvest of wheat exports from the country in the new season, as the Russian wheat remains the cheapest in the world market and continues to expand into new markets.
