China Makes U.S. Wheat Purchase Ahead of Trade Talks

First significant purchase for Chinese importers since tariffs were placed on grain last year

Cut wheat

USDA announced Thursday export sales of 130,000 metric tons of U.S. white wheat for delivery to China, a sale that comes one week ahead of the next round of bilateral trade negotiations, reports AgriPulse.

It’s the first significant purchase announcement for Chinese importers above 100,000 metric tons since China slapped a 25% tariff on the grain last year.

U.S. wheat exports to China were increasing before the trade war, but that ended when the tariff was imposed in July 2018.
