Victorian Barley to hit $300 by Christmas according to….

On Saturday I read with great interest an ‘analysis’ piece from an industry participant. This grain trader/broker has called for F1 barley prices to fall to between A$300-320 in Victoria before Christmas. I thought it was opportune time to look at pricing and see how likely this prediction is.

Improving sorghum prospects seeing a flat curve

Those following feed grain markets closely will have seen the interesting flat curve for ASX Grain Futures. The most expensive ASX Wheat contract is January, and prices are the same, or lower for subsequent contracts. Part of the explanation for this is the summer crop which is hoped to be harvested in autumn, so it’s worth taking a look at its prospects.

Wheat is wheat in a drought?

There is an old adage that during a drought, wheat is wheat. The wheat produced in the country will, for the most part, be going down a beasts throat, therefore grade spreads are not quite as important. We thought it was worthwhile taking a look at grade spreads to see what levels they are trading at.

Canola: Finally catching up

In early September, I wrote an article on my concerns related to the lack of movement in canola pricing. It was pointing towards a likelihood of increased pricing due to the very tight balance sheet within eastern Australia. It is worthwhile refreshing a month later.
