Read grain data and statistics about the South East South Australia region.
- Wheat: Steady ($295 to $305/tonne). Barley: Down $10 ($285 to $295/tonne). Maize: Steady ($480 to $490/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($305 to $315/tonne).
- Most wheat growing regions have received good rainfall over the past week, but more rain is needed to ensure good soil moisture is present to see out the crop. It would seem most of the state has either received too much rain, or too little.
- Old crop wheat prices have remained stable over the past week, with most pricing variations being driven by differing trader bids and storage provider costs.
- Growers appear hesitant to lock in any forward sales due to seasonal production risks.
- Old crop barley prices remain steady, while new crop barley is in the same scenario as wheat in terms of production risk.
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.
