Black Sea Regional Analysis

Russian Grain Markets: 4-8 October 2021 The average price on the Russian grain market continued to grow but the price increases were minimal. One of the main factors preventing further significant growth is that it’s impossible for the Russian exporters to keep increasing their offer prices or their product will become uncompetitive. As a result, their purchase price growth also slowed down or stopped. The exporters also considered that the export duties have continued to increase, although slowly.

Illuminating the value of technical research

On behalf of a commodity producer organization, WPI evaluated the outputs from a project that featured a $5 million investment into technical research over multiple years. WPI’s team captured the results of this extensive effort and synthesized them for presentation to the organization’s governing board; among the findings uncovered and presented for the first time was the development of genomic traits proven, via rigorous testing, to provide crop yield advantages of 50 percent or more to U.S. farmers in times of drought. Capturing measurable results from long-term efforts can be challenging. Educating clients on the dynamics of success measurement when quantifiable results are not readily available requires deep client-consultant collaboration and an ability to consider both near- and long-term client aspirations with market/policy dynamics – attributes that WPI brings to every consulting engagement.
