Japan’s agriculture ministry has booked 108,175 tonnes of Australian, Canadian and US milling wheat for September shipment, market sources told AgriCensus on Thursday July 8, noting that the tender occurred earlier in the same week.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) booked four parcels of US wheat, including 17,065 tonnes of western white wheat, 14,425 tonnes and 17,730 tonnes of hard red winter wheat, and 8,410 tonnes of hard red spring wheat.
