Japan buys 120,000 tonnes of wheat for weekly tender



Japan has sought 120,000 tonnes of feed wheat and 200,000 tonnes of feed barley in a weekly tender.
The country is also seeking the same amounts for both grains in a similar tender that will be conducted on August 7.


Japan buys a small portion of feed wheat and barley via the SBS auctions, in which end-users and importers specify the origin, price and quantity of grain, thus allowing millers to meet their various needs for the feed grain.


The tender was issued before Japan's farm minister announced that the country is lifting the ban on soft white wheat, used for cattle feed, from August 7, after halting imports of the grade, along with western white, following the discovery of an unapproved genetically modified crop.
