Kim Anderson Explains How the Black Sea Region Has Taken Over Global Wheat Exports Since 2000

Kim Anderson Explains How the Black Sea Region Has Taken Over Global Wheat Exports Since 2000 The wheat-producing area of eastern Europe often referred to as the “Black Sea Region,” consists most notably of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. In his appearance this weekend on SUNUP, Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson visits with host Dave Deken about the region’s recent cornering of the global wheat market.

To put into perspective just how quickly the region was able to assert its dominance in the market, consider the fact that in 2000, total world wheat exports amounted to 4.17 billion bushels. This year, world wheat exports are projected to increase by 2.5 billion bushels up to 6.66 billion bushels total. According to Anderson, the Black Sea Region accounts for 88 percent of that growth. Russia alone, exported only 19 million bushels of wheat in 2000 and this year will export 1.34 billion bushels.

So, how did these countries manage to accomplish this? Anderson explains that it was a concerted effort to improve their infrastructure and production practices and invest in better equipment and technology. Anderson says this has helped to nearly triple the region’s export capacity as well as the industry’s overall efficiency.
