European traders said... Iraq's Grain Board had purchased about 300,000 tonnes of US hard red winter wheat in a tender. If confirmed, it would be one of the single largest sales of wheat to Iraq in recent years... In the 1980s and 1990s the US was a major supplier of wheat to Iraq, but since then Australia has stepped in as the primary supplier of wheat bought by Baghdad.
