In April 2019, the specialists of the Rosselkhoznadzor came to Saudi Arabia to check the quality of domestic wheat, samples of which were sent to the Russian side at the end of 2018, and contained varying degrees of damage to the grain by turtle bug.
One of the main reasons preventing the export to the market of the Kingdom of Russian wheat, is the requirement of the country to lack in the exported quantities of wheat grains damaged by turtle bug. However, according to Rosselkhoznadzor, Saudi Arabia is the main importer of Russian barley — at the end of the 2017-2018 crop year (July 2017 — June 2018) export of barley in the Kingdom has exceeded 2.7 million t. in addition, each year, the country buys on the world markets more than 3 million tons of wheat.
