Russia Exported 2.8 Million MT 2004 Grain To September 30

Russia exported 2.8 million metric tons of grain harvested this year between the current marketing year began July 1 and Sept. 30, which is 400,000 tons less than in the corresponding period last year, according to the report released in Moscow Thursday by the agrarian market research institute IKAR.
IKAR said the fall in exports on the year was due to a shortage of feed barley which fell to 235,000 tons from 1.1 million tons exported in the corresponding period last year.
Russia's grain imports in July-Sept were 555,000 tons, mostly milling wheat, 120,000 tons more than in July-Sept 2003.
IKAR's forecast for Russia's total grain exports in 2004-2005 is seven million tons.
