Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($435 to $445/tonne). Barley: Steady ($330 to $340/tonne). Maize: Steady ($480 to $490/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($450 to $460/tonne).
  • Overall Victorian crops continue to progress well, however crops in the northern Wimmera and Mallee areas are starting to look thirsty as rainfall has diminished in past weeks.
  • Wheat prices remain steady despite grower selling, as the trade and domestic end users appear to be covered in the nearby.
  • Barley prices have risen slightly in the past week as buyers continue to have demand, but grower selling has reduced, in both spot and forward markets, given the recent weather conditions.
  • General sentiment, however, is that there is still adequate stock remaining on farm and in bulk handlers to satisfy domestic demand until new crop.

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.
