Price of wheat jumps following India's temporary export ban Updated: 2022-05-16 20:40:41 KST

The price of wheat has climbed sharply to a two-month high following a temporary export ban by India, the world's second largest producer.
Bloomberg reports that wheat futures on the Chicago Board of Trade rose by around six-percent on Sunday to trade at nearly 13 U.S. dollars per bushel.
India's ban is aimed at controlling rising domestic prices as a result of heatwave damage to its crops.
Although India is not a major wheat exporter, Bloomberg said the move led to a price shock as global wheat trade has already been struggling since Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Russia and Ukraine together had accounted for a third of global wheat and barley exports.
