Saudi Grains Organization has completed steps for its fifth tender for this year to import 1.74 million tonnes of fodder barley during September-October 2018 on board 29 ships through the kingdom's ports on the Gulf and the Red Sea, said a report.

The organisation's Governor Engineer Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Al-Faris pointed out that this batch comes as an extension of the kingdom's plan to cover the local demand for fodder barley and preserve its strategic stocks, added the Saudi Press Agency report.

The official noted that the organisation has contracted so far 6.2 million tonnes of fodder barley, it added.
