Food and Fertilizer Export Restrictions Tracker

Our export restriction tracker continues monitoring food and fertilizer trade policies by the countries. According to our data there are coupled of trade restrictions near to phase out. We keep watching these restrictions whether the countries end or renew them. Only one new restriction has come into place during this time. On 2 October 2022, China imposed export ban corn starch signaling that the country, the biggest importer of corn, is likely worried about local supplies. With this development, now the share of traded calories that are restricted due to ban or licensing or tax has reduced to 6.98% in October 2022, a slight decrease by 0.2 percentage points from September 2022.
