Delayed harvest impacting markets

There continued to be a bit of a stand-off in grain markets generally last week. Many buyers appear reluctant to be too aggressive in accumulating tonnes while the Australian harvest is being delayed in many parts of the country. Likewise sellers are also patiently waiting for conditions to improve so they can get the headers moving and assess what they have. Traded volume on Clear Grain Exchange followed where the harvest was progressing around the country. The harvest in Western Australia was progressing at a rapid pace with some big days of receivals reported into CBH through the week before some wet weather at the end of the week. Harvest in parts of north west NSW, Qld and SA were also seeing growers looking to engage the market with both old crop (21/22 season) and new crop (22/23 season) grain trading. Remember if you're looking to sell grain there is often better value available than what is indicated by published cash and contracts bids. Rather than hitting a cash bid this harvest, offer your grain at your price to all buyers on a secure and independent grain exchange. See below example of traded values versus the best published bid on the day for ASW1 in Kwinana as an example.

Last week new crop feed barley traded $378/t Brisbane track last week, spartacus barley traded $411/t in Port Lincoln. New crop H2 wheat and peas traded $502/t and $441/t in Pt Adelaide respectively.
