Global barley trade in 2012/13 is reduced 0.4 million tons this month to 16.7 million as some exporters’ production prospects wane. Ukraine’s exports are cut 0.5 million tons to 2.0 million, while Russia and Canada are each trimmed 0.2 million to 2.0 million and 1.1 million, respectively. This is partly offset by increased export prospects for Australia, up 0.3 million, and Argentina, up 0.2 million. Barley import prospects for Israel and Syria are reduced, but prospects for Russia are increased.
