- In some of the northern and central grain growing areas of Victoria some reports are suggesting that yields have been at the lower end of pre-harvest expectations.
- Wheat prices have been steady, with buyers unwilling to bid up this market too much in the expectation of more harvest sales in the coming weeks.

- For both wheat and barley, the pull of grain into northern areas is already being seen.
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.
