Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's main state wheat buying agency has told grains exporters it will no longer buy Canadian wheat and barley in its international tenders, European traders said on Tuesday, as a diplomatic dispute between the two countries escalates.

Traders said they had received an official notice from the Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) about its decision.

Canada on Monday refused to back down in its defense of human rights after Saudi Arabia froze new trade and investment and expelled the Canadian ambassador in retaliation for Ottawa's call to free arrested Saudi civil society activists.

The export of barley climbed more than 1000 percent, resulting in 1,360,096 tonnes being shipped abroad. Its main destinations were Saudi Arabia that increased its demand by more than 1,600 percent, allowing a sale of more than 70,500 tons and the United Arab Emirates, which was added as a new buyer, with a total of 1,242,736 tons so far this year. .

    truedope only interest in western canada farms is to investigate how incorporated farms are tax cheats, and attempt to remove cash deferrals from cash accounting. Truly no govt representation west of ontario. Reply With Quote

    Apr 22, 2019 | 07:25 8 To be fair, Canada has been sold out of barley until new crop for some time already. Barley is certainly popular crop option for this year as seed has been unavailable since about Christmas in AB. Reply With Quote

    Apr 22, 2019 | 08:54 11 There were reports during the weekend from Canadian traders that China had sent huge CIQ teams to investigate Canadian barley. The market fears China will shortly crack down on Canadian barley. Reply With Quote

    Which should be motivation enough to encourage everyone to NOT desiccate any crops this year. The bans may be purely political moves, but they will need a justification, and that is the easiest possible excuse to lock us out. Reply With Quote

    I don’t know of anyone or even seen anyone “desiccate” barley .. so not sure how it can be any issue ???

    But ya agree , it’s reglone only on peas , Blackbeans here.

    It will change some bigger farms .. a lot of wheat was sprayed early just so the combines could roll earlier to cover more acres. Right or wrong it has helped some farms expand dramatically. You add a week to harvest with 8-10 combines ... that’s a pile of acres off earlier to feed the driers . Not sure how the CPS wheats will be effected.

    Was watching RB auctions , late model swathers were selling very strong in comparison to other late model machinery. Reply With Quote
    Apr 22, 2019 | 12:33 14 "BUY THE SWATHER!!!"

    Our neighbours in AB sprayed around 3000 acres one fall because it was cool and the crop was coming in slowly. It happens. Reply With Quote

    Agreed , but the perception is it’s general... and it’s not even close on barley , not even remotely. Reply With Quote

    Because this is a public forum for anyone to read, I will just agree with you. But it only takes one, in order for it to be detectable in a load, for that to be used as an excuse. And I wasn't just referring to barley. Reply With Quote

    Heed the warnings. I posted this months ago.

    Doubt he can cancel Harper's deal. It was sealed up tight not for anyone else's eyes. But I'm sure China knows what it cost them, since they had a $60 billion deal with Saudi before we stepped up and were able to secure part of it. Reply With Quote
