Nicaragua to Buy Wheat from Russia

The country is negotiating with Russia the purchase of 100.000 tons of wheat to supply poultry farms.

Friday, February 25, 2011

With this initiative, the Ministry of Industry and Trade seeks to reach an agreement with the National Association of Poultry Producers (ANAP) for a reduction in the price of chicken meat.

The increase in the international prices of corn and soybean, the main raw material for breeding of chickens, has determined an increase in the price of chicken meat.

"Last October, the price per ton of yellow corn was $ 229, but by February 24, 2010, future purchase price rose to $ 272," reports La Prensa.
