Prices improve

Grain prices across Australia generally improved last week as international futures increased due to the escalating Ukrainian/Russian conflict. The Northern Hemisphere spring has generally been ticking along with reasonable weather conditions seeing international futures grind lower, pulling local Australian values in the same direction. However renewed concerns over supply of grain out of the Black Sea region, given the heightened Ukrainian/Russian tensions, and question marks remaining over the extension of the UN backed grain corridor from the region has seen international prices pushed up. This flowed through to Australian grain values with prices lifting to reach many price targets growers had set. Wheat made up the majority of all volume traded through Clear Grain Exchange last week at 83%. The full spectrum of wheat grades were in demand from higher protein to lower grades with 16 different wheat grades in total trading around the country. Good premiums continue to be paid for protein with H1 Pt Adelaide trading $447/t as an example. Discounts to lower grades continue to tighten closer to a $0/t spread from ASW1 with Albany a good example of ASW9 to AGP1 grades all trading $350/t. Demand for barley has remained incredibly consistent with $10-$20/t over $300/t port continuing to be the sweet spot for feed barley around the country, while malt grades get strong premiums when trading. Canola and the smaller crops such as pulses and oats have improved recently particularly with better conditions in the container market helping demand for the niche commodities and grades.
