Monday's Rotterdam vegetable oil prices at 1600 GMT.

Malaysian palm oil futures stretched losses into a second session on Monday to hit a more than one-week low, weighed down by falls in competing markets overseas and further technical correction. Although palm's demand outlook has brightened, thanks to an export duty cut on its crude grade, as well as anticipation that output may have already peaked in August, traders said the rally in benchmark prices had to be reined in.
China imported 366,368 tonnes of sugar in August, down 35 percent from a year before, as the gap between local and international prices closed, reducing profits for importers. Sugar imports in China, the world's second-largest consumer of the commodity, surged last year thanks to a large spread between international and domestic prices. But the profit margin has been eroded, with Zhengzhou prices at their lowest since late 2009, tracking global prices to five-year lows.
European wheat futures plummeted below 150 euros a tonne on Monday, pressured by a fall on US markets and spillover from hefty global corn crops, traders said. By 1532 GMT the November contract on Paris-based Euronext wheat futures was 5.00 euros or 3.3 percent lower at a four-year low of 148.50 euros a tonne. The contract has lost more than 10 euros in two sessions.
The share of milling wheat in Ukraine's 2014 wheat harvest will be 13 percent below the previous year's level, the APK-Inform news agency said on Monday. The agency said agriculture ministry inspectors had examined 14.6 million tonnes of wheat, or 60 percent of wheat harvested in 2014, before making the projection. Data from the inspectors showed that the volume of milling wheat totalled 8.2 million tonnes, or 56 percent of the studied volume.
Russian wheat prices are currently too high to compete with offers from France and the United States on most international markets, underscored by recent tender results, analysts said on Monday. Russia, one of the world's largest wheat exporters, usually ships grain to North Africa and the Middle East. But Russian wheat lost the last three tenders of one of its key clients - Egypt's state buyer GASC - and is now looking to smaller markets.
Vietnam, the world's second-largest rice exporter after India, has secured a contract to supply 200,000 tonnes of rice to Indonesia's state procurement body, Bulog, the second major government deal this month, traders said on Monday. Under the deal signed late last week, Bulog bought 50,000 tonnes of 5-percent broken rice at $443.5 a tonne, free-on-board basis, and 150,000 tonnes of 15-percent broken grain at $421/tonne for loading from October to December, two Vietnamese traders said.
