Thankfully for WA growers most of the state has received some very welcome rain over June to get the crop out of the ground, hopefully setting it up for an average or above average season.

Most farms across the East Coast cropping regions won’t be too disheartened to hear that we are in for a relatively dry fortnight ahead.

Last week bought about the first official national crop forecast from ABAREs for the 20/21 crop and generally, the numbers were in line with expectations

Many would be up to date on their spray programs so far, so what to do now with our grain marketing program? There are many questions that must be answered before we begin any forward sales of grains or oilseeds as we head into winter.

The overall rainfall outlook as a percentage has declined, the forecast is very much in favour for the cropping season which is in addition to much of the South Australian, Victorian, and New South Wales grain growing belts already positioned on close to full sub soil moisture profiles.

Well what a week we have had. Life is starting to get back to normal again. Kids back to school, pubs and restaurants opening up, footy just about to kick off and most growers have a grin from ear to ear and full of optimism. Life just doesn’t get much better than this.

It’s been very difficult of late to talk about anything in the grains market other than tariffs and barley, and rightly so. The announcement left most in the market stunned and prices reacted accordingly...

The big news this week is the increasing tensions between Australia and China over the alleged anti-dumping investigation of Australian barley, which looks set to come to a head after 18 months of uncertainty.

With Anzac Day historically being the ‘go to’ date to start the winter sowing program just past, we have seen the majority of growers already well and truly into this season’s sowing program due to the terrific early autumn break we have experienced.
20 Apr. 2020
ANZAC day is upon us and with it comes the traditional commencement of the 2020/21 sowing window. However the general and mostly generous rains throughout NSW over the months of March and April have presented conditions simply too good to wait for the green light normally heralded by the 25th of April and many growers are well into their sowing programs.

World markets are changing rapidly in reaction to the COVID-19 virus and its impact on all global markets over the next few months is anyone’s guess.
07 Apr. 2020
Another wild week down with what is shaping as many more to come as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to command headlines across the globe. Heightened levels of volatility are becoming the new norm across all equity, commodity and currency markets as the degree of uncertainty climbs.
31 Mar. 2020
Well what a rollercoaster ride we’ve been on over the last week. Life in general, the Australian economy, world economics and the soap opera of commodity markets continues to roll along.

Amazing to think that only a month ago farmers all across New South Wales and Queensland were rejoicing after continued rains had drenched the east coast.
10 Mar. 2020
The Autumn break has been welcomed with open arms from east coast farmers with totals throughout Southern New South Wales ranging from two to six inches on top of a similar break a fortnight earlier where much larger and variable rainfall accumulated in the northern cropping and pastoral zones. Previously absent from these events, areas south of the Murrumbidgee River received upwards of two inches providing much needed relief to the region.

You could be forgiven for not considering canola in your rotations this year. Despite the recent rainfall it is still only February and it goes without saying that follow up rain is needed in the coming months to significantly increase confidence.
