HAMBURG - Jordan's state grain buyer has issued a tender to buy 120,000 tonnes of milling wheat which can be sourced from optional origins, European traders said on Thursday.

The deadline for submissions of price offers in the tender is March 3.

Shipment in the new tender is sought in a series of possible combinations in 60,000-tonne consignments.

Possible shipment combinations are between Oct. 1-15, Oct. 16-31, Nov. 1-15 and Nov. 16-30.

A new tender had been anticipated after Jordan bought just 60,000 tonnes in its previous tender for 120,000 tonnes of wheat which closed on Wednesday.
