Japan Buys 10,600 Tons of Feed Wheat, 100,900 Tons Barley
Japan bought 10,600 metric tons of feed wheat and 100,900 tons of feed barley today through a tender system introduced to loosen government grain-import controls, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries said.
Shipment must be made by Dec. 31, Masafumi Otsuka at the ministry’s grain-trade division said today by phone. A breakdown of the countries of origin wasn’t available, he said.
The ministry, which holds feed-grain import tenders every Wednesday, plans to hold its next tender on Sept. 14 for a maximum of 50,000 tons of wheat and 200,000 tons of barley. The tender is held under the so-called simultaneous buy-and-sell system.
