Australian grain values improve

Buyer activity on the exchange continued to lift last week as they look to accumulate, plan, and manage their books ahead of the coming harvest.

Buyers were actively logging in, searching for grain offered for sale, bidding on grain, and often matching the price growers were asking for last week.

This resulted in a wide breadth of grain trading across all states in Australia often at much better prices than published bids being advertised. Hence, the activity on the exchanges is providing real price discovery.

22/23 season grain was actively being offered, bid and trading in the west, while a plethora of grades were trading through the eastern states which continue to navigate very difficult weather conditions.

39 different buyer businesses bought 33 grades of wheat, barley, canola, sorghum, oats, and a number of pulses including chickpeas, lupins, faba beans and peas.

22/23 season APW1 wheat was trading $455/t Geraldton and $450/t Kwinana, ASW1 was trading $350/t Kwinana.

On the old crop; APW1 traded $475/t Melbourne, $458/t Pt Adelaide, $456/t Newcastle, and $450/t Kwinana as examples. ASW1 was trading some huge spreads across the country with $436/t selling in Pt Adelaide, $429/t in Newcastle, $410/t Melbourne and $360/t Kwinana + plenty more locations.
