Middle East and North African wheat discharges usually fall in June and July, before rebounding sharply in August. That pattern has held again this year, with 908,865 Mt offloaded so far this month. That is equal to a rate of 41,158 Mt/d, and is down from 38,870 Mt/d discharged in June. It is also slightly below the import pace from a year ago of 45,956 Mt/d. Most of the wheat going to those regions comes from Ukraine and Russia, which usually ramp up exports in July following harvest.
