- Chinese feed makers scooped up wheat from reserves to substitute for more expensive corn.
BEIJING: China sold 515,209 tonnes of wheat, or 12.81% of the total on offer, at an auction of state reserves last week, the National Grain Trade Center said in a statement on Monday.
The volume sold, at an average price of 2,349 yuan ($358.19) per tonne, declined from more than 1.5 million tonnes sold in the prior week, as corn prices fell.
