Egypt is willing to reduce the demand for wheat from Russia

Egypt intends to review the approaches and reduce the requirements for the content of the fungus ergot in wheat, which comes from Russia. This was stated by the Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, Alexander Tkachev.

“This morning I received information that the Egyptian side wants to revise its approaches and reduce the requirements for the ergot content,” Tkachev said on the air of the Russia 24 TV channel.

Earlier, Egypt imposed a ban on the import of imported wheat with ergot content above 0%. The ban follows the tightening of agricultural quarantine rules after 30 tons of wheat from Russia was seized in the Egyptian port of Damietta, which, according to the Egyptian side, could be infected with ergot.
