Russia's exports of cereals 2000-2020

In crop year 2019/2020, Russia was forecasted to export 41.6 million metric tons of cereals. This was approximately three million metric tons lower than the volume of Russia's cereal exports recorded in the previous period.

What cereals does Russia export?

Wheat accounted for 78.5 percent of Russian grain exports in 2019. The country was predicted to trade 45 million metric tons of wheat to other countries by 2028, being the largest exporter of that commodity worldwide. Among other cereals, which are grasses cultivated for edible components of their grains, Russia exported barley, rye, corn, and rice. The nation’s rice exports were expected to reach 115 thousand metric tons in crop year 2019/2020.

COVID-19 restrictions on cereal exports in Russia

Limits to exports of certain foods from Russia as a food security measure during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic were imposed by the country on its own as well as within the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), together with Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. The EAEU restrictions included cereals like rye, rice, and millet. The Russian government introduced an export quota of seven million metric tons of wheat, rye, barley, and corn between April 1 and June 30, 2020 with an exception to exports to the EAEU.
