According to regional divisions of the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor), since the beginning of the season-2018/19 (July 1) and as of March 12, Russia already imported 2.4 mln tonnes of grains and oilseeds, as well as its by-products, as opposed to 2.5 mln tonnes in the same period last season, reported the Federal State-Funded Institution "Federal Centre of Quality and Safety Assurance for Grain and Grain products" on March 13.
The supplies of 10 major crops formed the main share of the reporting import volumes (93%), and as of the reporting date the figures reached 2.2 mln tonnes. Soybeans still remained the most high-demand crop on the Russian market in 2018/19 MY, which purchases totaled 1.4 mln tonnes (58% of the general imports), down 5% compared with the same period last season. Wheat took the second position in the rating (15%), but the grain imports decreased by 5% — to 349 thsd tonnes. Kazakhstan became the main supplier of the grain.
Also, Russia increased the imports of rapeseed in 5 times compared with the previous year level — to 47 thsd tonnes, as well as peas — up 8 times to 30 thsd tonnes, due to the growth of the supplies from Kazakhstan.
At the same time, the number of suppliers of the reporting crops to Russia totaled 70 countries, which completely met the figures in the same period last season. To date, the TOP-3 of leading suppliers included Brazil — 787 thsd tonnes (33% of the general volumes), Kazakhstan — 544 thsd tonnes (23%), and Paraguay — 518 thsd tonnes (22%).
