The Iran thinks about wheat exports

The Iran plans to increase its wheat exports to reduce its large surpluses that are caused by the Government's plans to obtain a full self-sufficiency. Nevertheless, certain qualities must be imported to satisfy the needs of the local Miller.
The Government in Tehran has admitted a great priority to wheat cultivation despite declining water resources because the grain is one of the most important staple foods in the Iran. Now exports are to be revived but, once in the spring, all imports were stopped.
Meanwhile, inventories have grown to 12 million tonnes, which would allow exports of 3 to 4 million tons, so representatives of associations. You do not need these quantities, but the right qualities with higher gluten levels, must still be imported.
This year's wheat harvest in the Iran was great 13.5 million tons, the largest harvest since 9 years. The producer price guaranteed by the Government will in the next season of 12,700 rials per kilo ($398 / to) raised on 14,000 rials per kilo ($438 USD/to). In comparison, Egypt bought Russian wheat for 192.5 USD/to + freight costs in the recent tender.
The Iran imported wheat in recent years also in the world market, to ensure the food supply in the country during the international sanctions over the disputed nuclear program. The sanctions were lifted in July 2015 due to diplomatic efforts.
Then, the Government in Tehran ordered the stop of wheat imports. In the first half of the year were still 1.5 million tons imported. Now the Iran wants to export also wheat flour, it is not competitive in the neighboring country of Iraq currently involved but against Turkey.
The Iran has grinding capacity of around 20 million tons, domestic consumption is only 12.5 million tons.
