Grain commentary

  • September rainfall: 27.6 mm (Avg: 50.9 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 228.4 mm (Avg: 423.5 mm)
  • Wheat: +$15 ($300 to $310/tonnes). Prices increased this week due to frost and drought concerns in New South Wales.
  • Barley: +$5 ($280 to $290/tonnes). The spread from wheat opened up recently.
  • Corn: +$10 ($325 to $335/tonnes). Prices increased in line with previous expectation as a result of the strong wheat market.
  • Canola Meal: Steady ($410 to $420/tonnes). Availability continues to be an issue, old crop prices increased due to dry domestic conditions and limited supply. New crop prices are trading at around a $40 discount. The global soybean meal complex is driving new crop price. Reports suggest there may be some good buying opportunity in the next month.


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.
