- Wheat: Up $5 ($360 to $370/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($325 to $335/tonne). Maize: Steady ($485 to $495/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($400 to $410/tonne).
- Grower selling has remained slow over the last week, but if further rainfall is seen it may entice more growers to enter the market.
- Despite rainfall across the region offering improved feed conditions looking forward, both wheat and barley markets have remained firm this week.
- The rainfall has also seen some forward crop contracting, as growers begin to build confidence in soil moisture profiles for next season’s winter cropping season.
- Price direction for markets in these areas is likely to be dictated by the amount of grower selling across the next few weeks.

Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.
