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.

A week is a long time in grain markets

24 Mar. 2020

A week is a long time in grain markets. This couldn’t be any truer than the week we’ve just experienced. The uncertainty the world is facing today has created some market moves that are truly mind-boggling. To think that in the last couple of days of 2019 the Aussie dollar was trading at 70c to where it fell to last week at around 55c is certainly not unprecedented, though it is astounding. Many markets around the world have been impacted by this, and our grain market is no exception.

It would be fair to say that not a country in the world that has not been affected.
