Jordan has cancelled a tender to buy 100,000 tonnes of wheat and will issue a new tender to buy the same amount with a deadline of Dec. 30, a government source said on Wednesday.

The wheat was being sought for shipment during the second half of April and the first half of May and the new tender will also seek the wheat for the same shipment period.

Jordan last bought wheat on Dec. 17 when it purchased 50,000 tonnes from Nibulon for $229 a tonne, cost and freight, for shipment in the first half of April.
