PARIS, Nov 13 (Reuters) - Farm office FranceAgriMer on Wednesday increased its forecast of French soft wheat exports outside the European Union this season to 12.0 million tonnes from 11.7 million projected last month.
The revised 2019/20 wheat export forecast was up 24% compared with last season’s level. FranceAgriMer had already increased its estimate last month from an initial outlook of 11 million tonnes in September.
