THE UK market finished virtually unchanged on Friday, with most buyers tidy for the month and looking to top up the October book at the same price level as that paid for the September.
The UK grain trade estimates 500,000t will have been shipped in September, but more than 400,000t needs to be shipped in October, November and December to stand a chance of clearing the projected 4.2-4.5 million tonne exportable surplus.
