Russian wheat climbs with global benchmark

MOSCOW, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Russian wheat export prices rose slightly last week following growth in wheat prices in Chicago and uncertainty around a deal aimed at resumption of massive exports from Ukraine, analysts said on Monday. Russia, Ukraine, the United Nations and Turkey signed the deal last month to reopen three Ukrainian Black Sea ports for grain exports. The first ship with the Ukrainian grain left the Black Sea port of Odesa on Monday. Russian prices for wheat with 12.5% protein content and for supply from Black Sea ports rose by $3 to $358 a tonne free on board (FOB) at the end of last week, the IKAR agriculture consultancy said in a note. Russia exported 650,000 tonnes of grain last week, compared with 540,000 tonnes the previous week, said fellow consultancy Sovecon, citing port data.
