Notes
Sales of wheat to the State Intervention Fund ceased in mid-November, when the market price of wheat in the Russian Federation increased sharply and surpassed the intervention prices by 70–90 percent. The first intervention purchases of wheat at new prices were scheduled for 23 and 24 December 2014.
