As 2014 progresses, wheat millers in the South East Asia Pacific (SEAP) region continue to follow the trend of recent years by continuing to expand their horizons, from traditional wheat origins like Australia, the US and Canada, to the Black Sea region and even India.

After a slight lull during Ramadan, import activity is on the increase, and from the autumn, the focus will move to Australia when its harvest begins.

With deep insight and extensive presence in the wheat supply chain, SGS regularly provides wheat quality data from around the world. This helps the trade to effectively align their buying patterns to meet their specific requirements.

After the monsoon season in the Indian subcontinent, SEAP’s focus is mainly on the crop outlook and the first quality reports on soybeans and corn from India, as this provides a clear indication of trade flows within the region.

In this issue, we look in more detail at Argentina’s agriculture industry, GMO detection, the advantages of effective grain monitoring systems, and report on a new barge monitoring system developed by SGS China.

Whatever the commodity, SGS provides services across the agricultural supply chain. Contact us for information or assistance.
