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...
12 May. 2020
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.

There is growing optimism as this year’s sowing program advances with the arrival of rainfall across the traditional ANZAC day period and widespread follow up of 30-70mm throughout NSW and VIC cropping belts accumulated at the beginning of May.
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.

As we wade through the current uncertainty in global food markets, it looks almost certain that the volatility in commodities will continue as we head towards winter conditions in Australia.
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.

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.

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.

Well what a month it has been! A real rollercoaster ride of natural disasters, then came the flooding rains to much of NSW & QLD, and now we are back into the fire with the COVID-19 creating real turmoil in world markets. It would be fair to say that not a country in the world that has not been affected.

After the first dry week in a month filled with storms, everyone in the country have been given a chance to take a breath and plan ahead for 2020. It is certainly a different prospect from six weeks ago.
10 Feb. 2020
Widespread rain across Queensland and New South Wales over the past 10 days has been more than welcome through the cropping and pastoral regions. Isolated falls of up to 12 inches have been recorded to date with more forecast for the current week.

Will Mason, who is the maintenance supervisor at Cargill’s Footscray crush plant, and his partner Ash, were so inspired by the support given to farmers devastated by bushfire they knew there was only one thing to do. Get involved.

The recent Coronavirus health scare that started in China and is spreading across the globe is adding a bearish or risk-off tone to most markets.
20 Jan. 2020
With parts of New South Wales and Queensland drenched over the preceding week and into the weekend, it was a very welcome reprieve for many in the regions who will now have water flowing in their tanks and dams.
06 Jan. 2020
With the devastation to many communities over the summer in New South Wales and Victoria, these events have really put life into perspective for many and the only real means of stopping this whole tragedy is rain (and lots of it) so let’s hope it comes soon.
