- Grain from South Australia has continued to be moved to the northern states via train this season, with several trains already being loaded.
- South Australian winter crop production is likely to finish just above average this season. The dry finish to the states growing season resulted, however, in a significantly higher percentage of the wheat crop reaching AH specifications.
- Spreads between higher protein and APW1 wheat have contracted as a result of this, coupled with the typical seasonal contractions in premiums in the post-harvest market.
- Approximately two thirds of the state’s barley crop reaching feed specifications, with barley prices remaining at a significant discount to wheat.
