Global Trade War to be a Boon for Black Sea Grain

Global Trade War to be a Boon for Black Sea Grain | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

10/07/2018, by Polina Devitt and Hallie Gu (Reuters).

Trade conflict between the United States and China could further boost already booming grain and oilseed exports from the Black Sea region, traders and analysts said.

New opportunities to sell wheat, corn and soybeans to China
and even the European Union are set to open up for the region's
main exporters Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, whose recent
ascendancy has already ended full U.S. dominance in markets such as Nigeria and Mexico.

"We have just started buying wheat from Kazakhstan this year. Our first order was for several thousand tonnes," a Chinese wheat trader said. "We will see about sales and profits. If they're good, we will increase imports for sure. It is related to the current trade war."

Russian influence key in U.S. wheat area decline

Russian influence key in U.S. wheat area decline | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Josh Sosland (World Grain), 02/01/2019 — In a Dec. 6 posting, Kansas Wheat indicated wheat acreage in the state will likely be down from 2018; in fact, planted area may be the smallest in 100 years. Wet weather during planting season has been identified as a culprit in keeping growers from their fields. But 2018 is hardly the first year rainy or snowy weather has interfered with wheat growers during planting season — many more influences have brought about wheat area atrophy in Kansas and across the United States.

One factor gaining attention has been the sluggish improvement in wheat yields versus those for corn and soybeans. The second reason comes from the emergence of Russia and Ukraine as major grain exporters. While the nations have been gaining prominence as exporters for many years, the transformative heights achieved over the past few bear note.

Hausse des céréales européennes et attente d'une baisse des exportations russes

Hausse des céréales européennes et attente d'une baisse des exportations russes | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

AFP, 17/12/2018

Les cours des céréales étaient en hausse, lundi à la mi-journée, alors que les opérateurs prévoient une baisse des exportations russes et une détérioration des récoltes en Argentine.

La fermeté des cours origine mer Noire se propage sur l'ensemble des marchés, et les récentes pluies sur l'Argentine laissent craindre une dégradation qualitative des blés sur cette origine, qui deviendra notre principal compétiteur en début d'année 2019 sur la destination Maghreb notamment », indique le cabinet Agritel dans une note. Par ailleurs, à la Bourse de Chicago, de nouvelles rumeurs de baisse des exportations russes ont offert la semaine passée un soutien au blé américain, susceptible d'être rendu plus attractif si cette hypothèse se confirmait.

Vers 12h30 (11h30 GMT) sur le marché à terme européen Euronext, la tonne de blé était en hausse de 1 euro à 207,75 euros, et de 1,25 euro sur l'échéance de mai à 209 euros, avec un peu moins de 10 200 lots échangés. À la même heure, la tonne de maïs gagnait 1 euro à 176,50 euros sur l'échéance de janvier, et 1,75 euro sur celle de mars à 179,25 euros, pour 660 lots échangés.

Black Sea Region: 2018/19 Outlook — BlackSeaGrain

Black Sea Region: 2018/19 Outlook — BlackSeaGrain | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

The winter conditions favored crops all over the region. In particular, Ukrainian winter crops were rated the best in four years. But this year’s abnormally cold March induced a very late start and a slow pace of seeding early spring crops in the Black Sea region. Thus, taking all of the above factors into account, UkrAgroConsult predicts a 5-6% year-on-year decrease in the Black Sea grain crop due to lower harvests of wheat and barley, as well as decrease of the exports
