Some nervousness in grain markets

There's some apprehension in Australian grain markets at present. The impact of the relentless wet weather in Eastern Australia is rippling through the industry. Growers are worried about or confirming crop losses and in many cases are daunted by the prospect of getting the crop harvested and safely in the bin. Buyers are nervous over quality and how logistics may flow, and so are looking for some harvest to confirm the crop shape to be more confident in ramping-up their buying programs. The result was limited trade activity in the eastern states last week, but quite a high amount of appetite to trade in the west where harvest is underway despite some damaging storms last week also. What was trading in the east was old crop at strong values versus published bids given the uncertainty in new crop. In the west both old and new crop were actively trading. CBH continued to post firm bids at prices closer to international values for finite daily volumes which appears to be having some market impact. Many growers are trying to sell into the CBH bids each day and missing out given on most days the bids are filled within minutes. However more and more growers and their consultants are drawing the dots between them trying to sell into the CBH bid and the value of offering grain for sale at their sale price on Clear Grain Exchange. Clear Grain Exchange provides an efficient and secure way of getting your sale price out to all buyers so they can see it and have the opportunity to buy it. You're anonymous and secure for any grain offered for sale and/or sold on the exchange. You retain title until you get paid. Old crop APW1 traded $497/t Melbourne and $496/t Portland. H2 traded $537/t Portland and $530/t Kwinana. ASW1 was trading $440/t Melbourne and $438/t Portland and $380/t Kwinana. Feed barley traded $382/t Portland, $373/t Geelong, $360/t Pt Adelaide, $345/t Pt Kembla and $332/t Albany. Spartacus malt was over $400/t with Geelong trading $468/t. Canola was back at the $900/t level + oil in Kwinana, faba beans were $440/t Pt Adelaide, lupins traded $300/t and oats $280/t Kwinana respectively. New season 22/23 crop H2 sold for $500/t in Geraldton, ASW1 traded $380/t Kwinana, BFED1 $335/t Kwinana, and CAN1 was trading $900/t + oil bonifications in Kwinana early in the week.
