Harvest still underway
The buckwheat crop in China suffered like many other agricultural commodities and the extreme drought, but frost also reduced yields. Market players highlight in particular the cultivation in Chifeng and Guyang in Inner Mongolia, as well as in the Wuchuan region in Guangdong province.
Farmgate prices for buckwheat with a residual moisture of 16-17% are at a level of USD 0.71/kg. Harvesting is progressing and, according to market players, a better overview of quality and yield is expected by the end of the month. Exp
