Rosselkhoznadzor states that over the last 3 months, the number of official claims to quality and safety of Russian grain exported to foreign countries has increased.
In particular, such countries as Vietnam, Indonesia and Egypt expressed their "discontent". In some cases, foreign partners talk about possible introduction of a ban on Russian grain imports, reports UkrAgroConsult.
In this regard, Rosselkhoznadzor decided to strengthen quality and safety control of exports.
For their part, Egypt and Vietnam tightened phytosanitary requirements for milling wheat. Egypt introduced a requirement to prevent infection of wheat pests completely. Vietnam established that the falling number of grain should be at least 180, and the content of sprouted grain should not exceed 15%.
