Wheat sales reach 6% of the harvest in Paraná

The commercialisation of wheat in Paraná reached 6% of the estimated production for the harvest that is being planted in the State, with producers taking advantage of the price increase driven by the exchange rate, said Ocepar. Wheat prices are attached to the exchange rate due to the country’s dependence on imports. Thus, internal quotations follow the parity of the value of the imported product.
