Australian grain values improve

Australian grain prices generally improved further last week despite CBOT wheat futures trading relatively flat to slightly lower over the week. Prolonged rain in the eastern states is causing havoc on both production and logistics. This continues to see bids for better quality grades push higher while lower grades were also stronger. On the international front, the market is on tender hooks waiting for some indication from Russia on whether the Ukraine grain corridor will continue after the current agreement expires in November. If Russia are not supportive of continuing the grain corridor, this would be supportive to grain values. The WA grower cooperative CBH continues to place bids in Western Australia at what they claim are closer to export parity, regardless of where other buyers are bidding. However the bids are for very limited tonnage which continues to cause some angst amongst growers. Remember - If the price being published is the price growers are wanting or willing to sell at, then growers have the power to offer their grain at the price they want to all buyers using Clear Grain Exchange. You're anonymous and secure. APW1 wheat was back up and trading over $500/t in South Australia with $503/t trading in Port Adelaide. APW1 also traded $490/t in Melbourne and $484/t in Port Kembla.

ASW1 wheat traded $445/t Port Adelaide, $440/t Melbourne, $434/t Port Kembla and $363/t Kwinana. Stock feed wheat made up a lot of the volume trading through NSW and was making $409/t in both Port Kembla and Melbourne. AGP1 was $426/t Newcastle, $405/t Port Kembla, $404/t Melbourne and $360/t Kwinana. Barley values improved with feed trading $378/t Melbourne, $362/t Portland, and $325/t Esperance as examples.
