The Russian Agriculture Ministry raised the upper end of its 2011 grain harvest forecast range to 90 million tonnes, local news agencies said Apr. 1, increasing the prospect of a possible resumption in exports. Officials have previously said Russia, which banned exports last summer following a severe drought, could resume grain sales abroad if the harvest reaches 85 million tonnes. – Reuters
