Ukrainian August grain export has almost halved compared to July, amid the suspension of the Black Sea grain corridor deal and continued delays in shipments from Danube ports amid long waiting times and big queues for exit and entrance to the Sulina canal.

Total export was at 1.76 million mt, while 65% of that amount went through the Danube and 25% by rail.

In the grain market, FOB nominal ideas were getting lower, as buyers' ideas did not improve, unlike freight for nearby shipments, which still remains in short supply.

Sunflower oil prices remained unchanged on Thursday, while the number of sellers and buyers was limited.

"I see limited offers, and several buyers but lower than traded levels," Onat Angi, Chairman of Solventum AS told Agricensus.

"Appetite is there to buy at bargain prices."
