Sporadic market as harvest nears

Australian grain markets have become more sporadic with less grain offered for sale and buyers observing weather and the impending harvest.


Growers have typically already sold the majority of their crop, and buyers are reluctant to push prices higher to attract more grain given the lift in Australian prices over the past month or so, a weaker lead from CBOT wheat, and the Australian harvest not far away.


Domestic buyers are juggling how much grain they have on the books, versus their requirements, versus the timing of the new crop harvest. Hence many are only wanting to buy as they need and then participate in the coming harvest. Exporters are in a similar frame of mind.


In saying that, a number of buyers are still needing grain in the near term and jumping into the market to engage offers.


ASW1 wheat in WA was an example of that last week with a number of buyers pushing prices to trade at $410/t Kwinana last week with significant volume trading. There were plenty of other examples - refer tables with trades below.


20 different buyers purchased 20 different grades of wheat, barley, canola, faba beans, lentils, lupins and oats across 11 port zones around Australia. More buyers were searching for grain offered for sale.


It has been similar in the igrain market for ex-farm grain. Buyers are searching grain offered for sale and engaging with a bid or purchasing parcels that work for them.


Higher protein milling wheat, feed wheat, feed barley and lupins traded through igrain in NSW and VIC with higher prices in northern areas compared with the south given the dry conditions.


If you have grain in warehouse or stored on-farm and a price in mind, be sure to offer your grain for sale on CGX or igrain so all buyers can see it and try to buy it. That's how you create demand for your grain particularly when demand is sporadic.


If buyers can't see your grain, they can't buy it!
