MOSCOW (Dow Jones) -- Russia's February grain export is likely to stay flat compared with the previous month at 1.15 million-1.2 million metric tons, rising to 1.3 million tons in March, the country's major railway grain transportation operator Rusagrotrans said Thursday.

Rusagrotrans said the continuing fall of the ruble against the U.S. dollar would contribute to increased exports in March.

The agriculture ministry said earlier Russia's grain export between July 1 2013, the beginning of the current marketing year, and Feb. 19, totaled 18.251 million metric tons, 33% more than in the corresponding period in the previous marketing year.
