Argentina will begin accepting declarations for export of wheat on April 7. The first exports will be allowed on April 21. Exporters must declare exports within 15 days of actually shipping the product with a 15 day grace period.
The wheat export registry has been closed several times since last year. More than 7 million metric tons of the 2007-08 wheat crop has been declared for export. In January the Agriculture Secretariat announced that an additional 2 million metric tons of wheat would be made available for export over the next five months, but the export office has remained closed.
