Russia considers limiting grain exports
Russia is considering imposing limits on grain exports because of the rise in grain prices on world markets, Grain Union President Arkady Zlochevsky told Interfax.

"It is possible to limit exports. The Agriculture Ministry has formed a special working group, which is holding the relevant consultations," he said.

No specific decisions have yet been made, he said.

"It would be inexpedient to limit exports during harvesting, and we shall see what happens when the harvest is over," he added.

The possibility of grain interventions, which are inevitably accompanied with an export duty, is also under consideration, he said.

"Export duties on certain types of grain, primarily barley, may be imposed before the interventions," Zlochevsky said.

Russia exported 450,000 tonnes of wheat and 150,000 tonnes of barley this July compared with 700,000 and 100,000 tonnes a year before.

In the opinion of the International Grains Council, world reserves of wheat will amount to 111 million tonnes this year. This would be the smallest amount since the agricultural year 1979/1980. Last year's reserves amounted to 117 million tonnes.
