North West Tasmania
|Date||Tas '21||Tas '20||Tas '5YA|
Notes:Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.
- Wheat: Up $5 ($395 to $405/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($345 to $355/tonne). Maize: Down $35 ($355 to $365/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($545 to $555/tonne).
- The harvest season is nearly wrapped up across northwest Tasmania, with some areas still finalising deliveries.
- Wheat prices rose earlier in the week, following an increase in the global markets. Barley prices continue to rise, also in response to strong offshore values. However, canola prices have started to reduce as future markets begin to flatten.
