Barchart Partners with SovEcon on Black Sea Grain Pricing and Research

CHICAGO, IL - September 16, 2021 - Barchart, a leading provider of data, tools, and software to agribusinesses around the world, has announced a new distribution partnership with SovEcon, a leading research firm focused on assessing stocks, consumption, crops and exports forecasting, and key price drivers of the Black Sea agricultural markets.

SovEcon will join the cmdty Pricing Network (CPN), making their Black Sea grain prices available to users through cmdtyView Pro, Barchart’s leading trading and analytics platform for global grain markets.  Additionally, users can access data from SovEcon through an API subscription.  With access to SovEcon's leading coverage of wheat, corn, soybeans, and other agricultural prices for Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, clients will be well equipped with the data they need to stay well-informed around the Black Sea agricultural markets.

“Barchart is rapidly expanding the offering of key commodity datasets from across the globe through the cmdty Pricing Network, and we’re thrilled for users to be able to access grain data for Black Sea regions through SovEcon,” says Barchart CEO Mark Haraburda.  “SovEcon’s unique data offering expands our network’s footprint even further and provides our users with access to a specialized segment of the agricultural market that is difficult to find elsewhere.”

“We are proud to partner with Barchart to provide traders and buyers with reliable, and timely information for Black Sea exports to help better manage their risk," says Andrey Sizov, Managing Director of SovEcon.  "By using our data within Barchart's platform, users will be able to stay ahead of the market with timely information from the Black Sea grain markets, which remains opaque to many.”

SovEcon data can be accessed as part of a cmdtyView Pro subscription or through an API subscription.  To learn more or to subscribe to SovEcon’s Black Sea grain data, please click here.
