Aust 'loses' Iraqi wheat deal to US
Australia has reportedly missed out on a contract to supply Iraq with one million tonnes of wheat, with the United States winning the deal.

Earlier this year a 120,000 tonne shipment of Australian wheat was prevented from unloading in Iraq, due to allegations the grain was contaminated with iron.

AWB spokesman Peter McBride says the two issues are not related.

"We've done a contract since that allegation, so that issue's behind us," he said.

"AWB has always stated that Iraq was going to be a competitive commercial market going forward, and we believe the US and other suppliers would have a market share, as would AWB."

Future wheat contracts will be approved by the Iraqi Government, instead of the country's Grains Commission.

Federal Agriculture Minister Peter McGauran does not believe the sale process will become increasingly political.

"We do have a 50 year successful track-record at supplying Iraq, and we just have to compete and satisfy the Iraqi requirements in regard to price reliability as well as supply," he said.
