Import of Buckwheat Increased by 8.3%

In 2015, Azerbaijan imported 3,096 tons of buckwheat. This is by 8.3% more than in the previous year. Russia accounts for 95% of the imports.

According to the State Customs Committee, in 2015 a kilogram of buckwheat was recorded at the Azerbaijani customs at an average price of $ 38.15, by $ 3.56 exceeding the figure for 2014.
