Read grain data and statistics about the South West Western Australia region.
Wheat: Down $5 ($315 to $325/tonne). Barley: Steady ($310 to $320/tonne). Triticale: Steady ($385 to $395/tonne). Oats: Steady ($350 to $360/tonne).
- A large amount of grower selling and very little demand in feed grain markets caused a drop in prices across the board in Western Australian markets.
- Additionally, Western Australian barley is being forced to be heavily sold into the eastern states after it failed to win any international export business. However, on the East Coast, barley prices are currently supported by a struggling sorghum crop that is not expected to yield as well as was thought at the start of the season.
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.
