Grain Commentary

  • June rainfall: 44.6 mm (Avg: 84.8 mm)
  • Rainfall year to date: 260.8 mm (Avg: 488.2 mm)
  • Wheat: +$10 ($390 to $400/tonne). Wheat prices increased this week as the projected rainfall turned out to be a bit of a disappointment for NSW. Crop conditions continue to get worse for much of NSW and even the southern areas have strong demand coming from further north.
  • Barley: +$10 ($390 to $400/tonne). Barley markets continue to price relative to wheat.
  • Corn: +$15 ($415 to $425/tonne).
  • Canola Meal: +$5 ($470 to $480/tonne). Canola meal prices firmed slightly this week. Even at levels the scarcity of available product means that getting a hold of it is going to continue to get more and more difficult.


Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.
