World wheat trade for 2010/11 projected down slightly

World wheat trade in 2010/11 is projected to be down slightly this month by 0.3 million tons to 125.3 million. EU-27 exports are cut 0.5 million tons to 21.5 million, while Canada’s forecast exports increase 0.5 million to 17.5 million. Despite a higher volume of accumulated wheat sales and export licenses on the year for the EU-27, tightening wheat supplies are expected to curb wheat exports later in the marketing year as domestic prices increase.
