India top buyer of Ukrainian wheat this season

Ukraine`s January wheat exports fell by around 14% to 1.2 million tonnes and most of it went to India, UkrAgroConsult reported on Wednesday.

India, a major importer of Ukrainian wheat this season, consumed 780,000 tonnes or 64% of Ukraine`s wheat exports last month, according to UkrAgroConsult.

”Taking into account wheat cargoes intended for February delivery to India, the seasonal total of Ukrainian wheat shipments to the country already reached 3 million tonnes,” it said.

Ukrainian wheat exports in the first seven months of the current season, which runs from July to June, are up 16% from the previous season at 12.72 million tonnes.

The report says Ukraine exported 10.99 million tonnes of wheat in the same period in 2015/16.
