Grain commentary

  • Wheat: Up $10 ($330 to $340/tonne). Barley: Up $10 ($300 to $310/tonne). Maize: Steady ($500 to $510/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($295 to $305/tonne).
  • 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.

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.
