Russia set an export duty on its wheat at a level that may not discourage all exports. The duty will amount to 15 percent of a shipment’s total value, plus 7.50 euros a metric ton, according to a decree dated Dec. 25 and published today on the government’s website. The duty will amount to at least 35 euros a ton, effective from Feb. 1 through the end of the 2014-2015 wheat-marketing season on June 30, the government said.
