Wheat prices reach their lowest in four weeks

Chicago wheat futures reached their lowest in four weeks on Thursday, as commodity traders carefully monitor the possible maritime trade corridors for Ukrainian wheat and fertilizers. The Russian president, Putin said that Russia was willing to open safe corridors to allow foreign ships to leave the both the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov ports, which would allow commercial shipping of Ukrainian grains after three months of war in the country, should western countries lift sanctions.
