Grain prices surge to new levels - again

All grain values across all locations climbed through last week before a bullish USDA report released Thursday night saw grain prices continue the surge higher.

Australian grain remains in an enviable position while supplies from other global exporters remain constricted and uncertain into the back end of this year.

On top of this, in the last month the Australian dollar slid lower to 70 USc and international freight costs are holding firm as COVID disruptions continue. These further strengthen the competitiveness of Australian grains to our major export customers, particularly those in Asia given our closer proximity.

Local Australian prices are well supported now and remain competitive to win international business, however we still have huge discrepancies in prices across port zones.

Per the table below, APW1 has traded $531/t port in Port Adelaide versus $475/t in Melbourne, $455/t FIS in Kwinana as examples. These variations are typical across all grades of all commodities.

The difference in values is being driven by availability of the supply chain to access more export demand, buyers managing their cashflow at high prices creating spurts of demand, and very likely the availability and price growers are offering their grain for sale.

There is often more value available than the price being bid. There are also often more buyers that want your grain than you may realise.

Growers should remember that just like a buyer can show their bid price a grower can show their offer price.

Offer your grain for sale to all buyers securely with Clear Grain Exchange and ensure you sell at it’s full value.
