270 ha of buckwheat sown
Shipments of European buckwheat arrive regularly in China, with ports in Tianjin and Manjur being the main ports of call. Imports are putting pressure on the domestic market, as import prices are more attractive. Meanwhile, sufficient goods from the domestic crop are still available on the market, but demand here is limited. Prices could therefore decline further in the coming weeks. Conventional hulled buckwheat is currently offered for USD 1,130/mt FOB Dalian, for organic quality the offers are at a level of USD 1,210/mt FOB Dalian.
