Egypt bought 175,000mt of wheat from Romania and Russia yesterday, totalling the country’s wheat imports at 1.065Mmt since July’14.
Farmers who sold grain through a range of Gleadell pools during the past 12 months have received significant premiums over open-market prices, topping out with an £18/t premium for feed wheat in the final quarter.
What is believed to be the UK’s biggest bagged seed store will come on stream this harvest at Dunns’ headquarters at Long Sutton, Lincolnshire.
Farmers belonging to Gleadell’s Weetabix Growers Club could soon be sending more high quality wheat to the Northamptonshire-based cereal manufacturer.
