EU, UK 2020/21 Soft Wheat Exports Reach 7.84 Million Tonnes

Soft wheat exports from the European Union and Britain in the 2020/21 season that started on 1 July have reached 7.84 million tonnes, official EU data has revealed.

The data was due to cover the period up to 8 November, but the European Commission specified in a note that figures only ran to 6 November due to an ongoing technical issue.

The exports were 24% below the volume cleared by 10 November last year, the data showed.

Other Commodities

EU and UK 2020/21 barley exports had reached 2.90 million tonnes, down 7%, while EU and UK 2020/21 maize imports stood at 5.86 million tonnes, down 19%.

The EU's weekly export and import data for cereals and oilseeds has been disrupted by a series of technical problems in the past month.
