Prices stabilise and improve


Prices for many grades of grain stabilised and/or improved across Australia last week with buyers stepping in to get hold of grain.



This enabled grain markets to come together with 36 buyers purchasing 39 grades of wheat, barley, canola, faba beans, lentils and oats from 172 sellers in 14 port zones across Australia last week through Clear Grain Exchange.



21 buyers purchased 13 grades of wheat ranging from higher protein milling grades through to feed grades. H2 wheat traded $380/t Kembla, $365/t Kwinana, and $342/t Pt Adelaide. H1 was still trading at significant premiums with $390/t Kwinana and $363/t Pt Adelaide trading, while Stock feed wheat traded $322/t Newcastle equivalent.

16 buyers purchased 9 grades of barley through Clear Grain Exchange last week. First grade feed barley was trading $335/t Kwinana and Albany, $292/t Pt Adelaide, and $284/t Portland as examples. Lower grade barley was also trading at slight discounts to feed. Commander, Maximus and Planet malt grades were fetching premiums in some instances and trading close to feed prices in others.



9 buyers purchased canola grades through CGX last week as the market seemed to be garnering some buy side demand. Buyers were generally paying better prices for ISCC certified grades (Note; growers should select the canola grade with "EU" when offering to declare they're comfortable making ISCC declarations).



ISCC declared non-GM canola was trading $700/t in Esperance, $633/t Kembla, and $623/t Melbourne + oil bonification payments as examples. While GM canola was trading $660/t Kwinana and $614/t Melbourne + oil bonification payments.



Lentils, faba beans and oats were also trading.



If you have grain in warehouse unsold it should be on offer at the price you are willing to sell it for, no matter what price that may be.



Buyers can't try to buy your grain if they can't see it, and if they can't pay the price you want now, at least they know the grain is there. By having your grain on offer it keeps buyers interested and participating in your port zone.



You're anonymous and protected by secure settlement at all times when offering grain for sale and selling through CGX. There is only upside in having your grain offered for sale.
