  1. WHEAT MARKET SITUATIONINKOREA Won Bang Koh, Ph.D. Country Director U.S. Wheat Associates

  2. WHEAT FLOUR CONSUMPTION

  3. WHEAT IMPORT OF KOREA BY ORIGIN DURING CY2007

  4. WHEAT MARKET SHARE BY ORIGIN

  5. CURRENT CONSTRAINTS • Wheat Pricing • USW: Free marketing system Tighter specification required with premium • AWB: Monopoly marketing system Price negotiation (Undercutting geared with US wheat price; US$2 to 5/MT- ASW vs HRW, US$10 to 24/MT- AH vs HRS) Cheaper ocean freight rate ($2/MT) No quality specification needed

  6. Wheat Quality • Quality Consistency: Dough stability Kernel vitreousness • Functional Quality: Noodle properties (ash, color and starch)

  7. Wheat Safety • Pesticide MRLs (ppm): CODEX USA KOREA WheatFlourWheatFlourWheatFlour Malathion 0.5 0.2 8.0 - 8.0 1.0 Chlorpyrifos Methyl (Reldan) 10.0 2.0 6.0 - 6.0 2.0 Chlorpyrifos 0.5 0.1 0.5 - 0.1 0.02 Fenitrothion- 2.0 - - 6.0 1.0 * A total 20 wheat shipments showed higher than CODEX recommendation 0.5 ppm MRL in malathion residue during 2001 - 2007. • Vomitoxin: • GM wheat:

  8. ACTIVITES TO ENHANCE OR HOLD USW MARKET SHARE • US Wheat Quality Improvement Symposium • Quality discussion between US wheat breeders and Korean millers as well as researchers of wheat-based food industries
