EU vote could extent wheat and barley import-duty moratorium

The European Union may vote this week to extend a moratorium on wheat and barley import duties until June 30, reports Bloomberg. “It’s on the agenda listed as possible, as it would be this time of year,” the news network quotes EU spokesman Roger Waite. Bloomberg pursues that according to Waite, a vote may take place as soon as Nov. 24. As it currently stands, the moratorium is set to continue until the end of December.

The EU had relaxed its import duties in June after drought in parts of the UK, France, Spain and Germany which severely endangered production. With increased precipitation in July and August, production picked up again, causing wheat prices to decline.
