Bloomberg writers Aine Quinn and Anuradha Raghu reported today that, "Russia said top agricultural commodities trader Cargill Inc. will stop exporting its grain, the strongest move yet by a major Western crop merchant to pull back from the country.

"As the biggest wheat exporter, Russian shipments are vital to global crop trade and food supplies.
