 Export prices of wheat and maize in November remained stable but at high levels. International rice prices followed mixed trends according to origin but were generally lower than a year earlier.

 In wheat consuming countries of the CIS, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia and Africa, domestic prices of wheat and wheat flour were at record or close to record levels in November, supported by high prices in international and regional export markets.

 Prices of maize in Southern Africa increased sharply in Mozambique and Malawi where they were generally 40 to 100 percent higher than a year earlier.
