- Queensland and Nth NSW sorghum growing belt will receive solid rainfall this week, helping to boost crop growth. Although there is limited export demand for sorghum, with all the sorghum that is being sold at the moment going into domestic homes, there may be an increase in export demand should we see some further weakness in local sorghum values.
- Prices of wheat and barley continue to be at or slightly below Western Australian import parity, thus leading to small amounts of grower selling.
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.
