Turkey buys 210,000 T wheat from supplies already inside country

Turkey’s state grain board TMO on Friday provisionally purchased an estimated 210,000 tonnes of wheat in a tender seeking supplies already in warehouses in Turkey, traders said.

The lowest price was said to be $409.00 a tonne ex-warehouse for 12.5% protein wheat.

Two wheat tenders from the TMO close on Friday. Along with the tender seeking 210,000 tonnes of supplies already inside Turkey, the other seeks about 270,000 tonnes for import shipment to Turkey, with results still awaited.

The tonnages purchased in TMO’s tenders are provisional and subject to final confirmation in the coming days. Purchases can be reduced or cancelled completely.

Traders reported these provisional purchases in the warehouse tender, showing port of delivery, tonnes sold, seller, protein content and price in dollars per tonne ex-warehouse in Turkey

But some grain trading houses have made advance shipments of wheat to warehouses in Turkey in recent months to avoid repeated increases to Russia’s grain export taxes.
