TOKYO: Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture bought 114,242 tonnes of food-quality wheat from the United States in a regular tender that closed late on Thursday.

Japan, the world’s sixth-biggest wheat importer, keeps a tight grip on imports of the country’s second-most important staple after rice, and buys majority of the grain for milling via tenders typically issued thrice a month.
