Grain commentary

  • February rainfall: 0.3 mm (Avg: 34.6 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 24.5 mm (Avg: 74.3 mm)
  • Wheat: +$5 ($270 to $280/tonne). Prices firmed again this week driven by the ongoing strength in global wheat markets. Growers are likely to hold onto stocks due to current dry conditions and expectations of a diminishing national supply which could increase prices further on in the season.
  • Barley: +$5 ($270 to $280/tonne). Chinese demand continues to provide support to barley and sorghum. The recent Saudi tender has provided a price floor.
  • ┬áCorn: Steady ($365 to $375/tonne). Prices remain steady and demand fairly quiet. New season price will most likely sell at a large discount.
  • Canola Meal: Steady ($395 to $405/tonne). Canola meal prices remain well supported with strong demand from the dairy industry and strong global soybean meal prices.


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.
