France exported more barley to EU third countries than wheat in July

French wheat exports from the EU fell in July to their lowest level in the past ten years. The extensive exports in the 2019/20 season will come to an abrupt end. France now exports more barley than wheat to countries outside the EU.
Soft wheat exports to third countries in July reach 432,000 tonnes. July is the first month in the new marketing season 2020/21. Exports were now 216,000 tonnes less than in July 2019 and the smallest amount in July since 2009/10.
Wheat is France's largest export grain over the entire marketing year. Last month, however, 480,000 tonnes of more barley were exported to third countries. The amount includes 336,000 forage barley and 111,000 tons of malting barley, all of which were shipped to China.
All French grain exports reach 541,000 tons in July. July is typically a quiet month of export for wheat in France as traders are waiting for the new agricultural offer. This year the French wheat harvest is very small. The smallest amount in years.
The consulting company FranceAgriMer expects that in the 2020/21 season from France only 7.75 millionTons of common wheat are exported, which would be 43% less than in the previous season and the smallest amount in the last four periods.
In July, Algeria was once again the most important third country market with 182,000 tons of French wheat.
Seaborne exports to the EU and the UK amount to 133,000 tons of wheat and 251,000 tons of all cereals.
Most French grain exports to the EU in July did not go abroad via the seaports. Taking all July grain exports via France's seaports, including wheat, barley, malting barley, maize and durum, together, the amount of 1.17 million tons is the smallest export volume since the 2017/18 season.
