Russian wheat export prices registered a third consecutive weekly decline last week, hit by strong competition with other major exporters and a decline in global benchmarks in Chicago, analysts said on Monday. Egypt's state grain buyer bought 180,000 tonnes of Russian and 180,000 tonnes of Romanian wheat last week. Egypt is traditionally the second-largest buyer of Russian wheat behind Turkey.

Russian wheat with 12.5% protein content, loaded from Black Sea ports, fell by $6 to $220 a tonne free on board (FOB) at the end of last week, SovEcon said. Barley was steady ay $192 a tonne. IKAR, another agricultural consultancy in Moscow, pegged wheat at $220 a tonne, down $3.

Russia exported 26.5 million tonnes of grain, including 22.9 million tonnes of wheat, between the July 1 start to the 2019/20 season and February 13, SovEcon said, citing customs data. Total grain exports were down 19% from a year earlier.

"We expected the export pace to pick up in February but it is not the case so far. It remains slow," SovEcon said. "Things could still improve in the next few weeks as traders' margins start to recover."
