Further delays in sowing

Black inshells are trading at EUR 0.65/kg CPT Varna and prices are expected to rise. Although the reference prices for the new crop range at EUR 0.90/kg FCA Bulgaria, rumour has it that suppliers in Ukraine and Romania have issued prices of EUR 0.85/kg DDP Germany for the new crop.
