Food and Fertilizer Export Restrictions Tracker

Jan 2023 update: 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 16 January 2023, Mexico announced a temporary 50% tax on white corn exports, arguing it is necessary for the grain to remain in the country to guarantee supply and price stability. With this development, now the share of traded calories that are restricted due to ban or licensing or tax has reduced to 7.81% in January 2023, an increase by 1 percentage points since October 2022. (The next update will be published on March 1, 2023.)
