MOSCOW (Dow Jones) -- Russia's grain exports between July 1, the beginning of the current marketing year, and Oct. 16, totaled 9.97 million metric tons, 7% more than in the corresponding period last year, the federal statistics service said Monday.

The statistics service said grain exports during Oct. 10-Oct. 16 totaled 1.07 million tons, including 832,000 tons of wheat, 153,000 tons of barley, 75,000 tons of corn and 8,000 tons of other minor grains.
