TOKYO - Japan's Ministry of Agriculture said it would import 100 metric tons of feed-quality wheat and 1,600 metric tons of barley for livestock use, via a simultaneous buy and sell (SBS) auction that closed late on Wednesday.

The ministry had sought 120,000 metric tons of feed wheat and 200,000 metric tons of feed barley to be loaded by June 30 and arrive in Japan by Aug. 31 in the tender that is usually conducted weekly.

It is seeking the same amounts for each grain to be loaded and shipped during the same period in a similar tender that will be held on March 23.

Japan buys a small portion of feed wheat and barley via so-called SBS auctions, in which end-users and importers specify the origin, price and quantity of grain, allowing millers to meet their varied needs for the feed grain.

Details of the results are below, with the quantity in metric tons and the average price in yen per metric ton:
