Black Sea and Surrounding Regions

Since early 2000's Black Sea origin wheat has grown – from comprising less than 10% to making up to 25% of global grain markets. For Australia, the volume and price of Black Sea origin wheat in Australia’s traditional and major markets in South-East Asia has been a cause for concern.
