In the new agricultural year, taking into account stocks and forecasts on a new crop harvest, the amount to be exported will be about 45 million tons of grain.
According to the calculations of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, over 40 million tons of grain (8 billion USD) were delivered to foreign markets this agricultural season. Grain buyers are Egypt, Turkey, Bangladesh, African countries, Saudi Arabia.
According to the results of this agricultural year, the Russian Federation will be able to supply about 43 million tons (about 8.5 billion dollars) to foreign markets, which corresponds to the original plan.
Restrictions were introduced on the grain export to stabilize prices in the domestic market. Until the end of June, the export of rice, rye, soybeans and sunflower from the EAEU was suspended.
