Read grain data and statistics about the South West Victoria region.
- Wheat: Down $5 ($290 to $300/tonne). Barley: Down $5 ($305 to $315/tonne). Triticale: Steady ($370 to $380/tonne). Oats: Steady ($335 to $345/tonne).
- As is the case with most of Australia, Western Australia remains relatively dry with some small pockets of the eastern wheatbelt receiving approximately 30mm of solid rainfall in the past week.
- There is expected to be further rainfall in the coming week for northern and eastern areas of Western Australia, however this will not be a break for the season that most will be looking for.
- Due to the current lack of soil moisture and crop rotations, it is expected that there may be a decrease in the amount of canola planted this year.
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.
