- Wheat: Steady ($330 to $340/tonne). Barley: Up $5 ($280 to $290/tonne). Triticale: Steady ($290 to $300/tonne). Oats: Steady ($270 to $280/tonne).
- Western Australia has seen a positive start to the season with large rainfall across most cropping areas, reportedly providing growers with one of their best starts to the season in years.
- Wheat prices were varied over the past week, with some demand for old season wheat.
- Barley markets have been steady, with many buyers and sellers generally happy with current price levels. WA values will continue to be shaped by Saudi Arabia demand.
- Oats prices continue unchanged, though domestic demand is on the rise and export demand remains positive.
