Ministry of Agriculture Rules Out Buckwheat Deficit

The buckwheat harvest is enough to replenish stocks and to replenish store shelves until the next harvest. “The Ministry of Agriculture estimates buckwheat stocks as sufficient, the possibility of a deficit is excluded,” the ministry said in a statement.

The demand for buckwheat grows during the crisis – the population primarily buys long-term storage products, Russian media reported.

Buckwheat harvest will grow by 12% this year – now a third of all sown areas in Russia have been harvested.

The price of buckwheat is not growing, and there is a fairly useful product on the shelves, according to the latest statistics.
