Iraq put its hand up for 400,000t after wheat’s limit-up move on Friday. Romania ports are loading boats and can theoretically sell wheat, but the shipping premium would be impressive
Local markets rounded the week out stronger. Wheat values rose over A$25-30/t over the week, and barley gained $30-35/t. Canola markets along the east coast and in South Australia went from strength to strength, and SA values hit $1000/t.
