Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($300 to $310/tonne). Barley: Down $10 ($280 to $290/tonne). Maize: Steady ($490 to $500/tonne). Oats: Up $10 ($455 to $465/tonne).
  • South Australia has received substantial rainfall in the last few days, as crop emergence has been good across most areas of the state this rainfall will allow strong establishment.
  • The rainfall event that hit the state has been the most significant and widespread rain since 2017. On the back of this, wheat and barley markets have softened as grower selling increased.
  • Confidence for the coming season has increased due to the beneficial rainfall in the past week.

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.

This report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of grain and hay markets in each dairying region.
