The Egyptian Supreme Administrative Court ruled in favor of an appeal, presented by the State Lawsuits Authority, against the ban over imports of Russian wheat after they were found to contain traces of Ergot fungus. Egypt, the world’s biggest wheat importer, had rejected a Russian wheat cargo for excessive levels of the common grain fungus ergot at the end of the May. The 63,000-tonne cargo, sold to state grain buyer GASC, contained 0.06 percent ergot, just above the 0.05 percent limit permitted according to Egypt’s state tender rules. The rejection came after payment disputes held back a Russian wheat cargo in Egypt and another one at the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk. The Supreme Administrative Court ruling coincides with Moscow’s Russian-Egyptian summit. With the attendance of a Russian-Egyptian Business Council representative, the summit discussed technical problems that could present a hurdle in agricultural trade, particularly in wheat and potatoes. For Russia, Egypt is the largest and the most important wheat market. Egypt receives almost one-third of Russian wheat exports.
