The amount of duties is calculated weekly based on price indicators based on the prices of export contracts, which are registered on the Moscow Exchange. The cut-off price for wheat is $ 200 per tonne, for corn and barley – $ 185 per tonne. The amount of the duty is 70% of the excess of this indicator.
