Wheat Prices Dropping

CHICAGO — Wheat futures fell for the second straight day Friday on signs that demand is shrinking for U.S. exports, amid increased supplies from Russia.

Egypt, the biggest importer, agreed Friday to buy 180,000 tons from Russia. Pierre Begoc, general director in Kiev of Paris-based farm adviser Agritel, said Russian wheat is as much as $40 a ton cheaper than U.S. and Western European grain, and that advantage may last for several weeks.

Wheat futures for September delivery fell 12.25 cents, or 1.7 percent, to settle at $6.95 a bushel at 1:15 p.m. Friday on the Chicago Board of Trade. The price dropped 1 percent Thursday.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
