Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Up $30 ($365 to $375/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($325 to $335/tonne). Maize: Up $10 ($505 to $515/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($420 to $430/tonne).
  • The low Australian dollar has seen markets become very busy over the last week. The rising prices has bought growers into the market selling both grain on hand and making forward sales.
  • Wheat prices were firmer over the past week due to the low Australian dollar and rising offshore markets.
  • This saw export traders as the most aggressive bidders in the market as Australian wheat has become more export competitive.
  • Barley prices followed wheat higher, however there was not the same push on the bid side. More grower selling of wheat this week has further skewing the amount of unsold old crop towards barley.

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.
