Turkey limited wheat imports from Russia for the second time this year, according to traders and Turkey’s grain association.

Turkish trade authorities curbed the amount of Russian wheat in recent cargoes to under a third of the total shipment, said traders at AgriPro Ltd. and GTCS Trading DMCC. The restrictions were added about a week ago and reduced Russian wheat to 20 to 25 percent, according to Gulfem Eren, chairwoman of Turkey’s Grain Suppliers Association.
