    Global Wheat Set to Drop Chris Coore, Agfarm Advantage Manager June 15th 2018   Grain industry participants around the world have their hands closely hovering over the big red panic button, and it would seem for good reason. The June 2018 United States Department of Agriculture grains report stated global wheat production has recently been […]

  • WA Market Update – 15/06/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA The weather has generally been kind over the last week or so with approximately 10–40mm falling in most agricultural regions. The first front which came through early last week maintained the northern pattern which we have seen this season, with southern zones getting less than they would normally expect […]

  • SNSW Market Update – 15/06/2018

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account SNSW The vast majority of the region received somewhere in the vicinity of 12mm over the course of the week. Some areas south and east of Wagga Wagga received up to 25mm with areas to the north and west receiving less. This won’t immediately change the production outlook for the East […]

  • VIC Market Update – 15/06/2018

    Sam Davidson, Agfarm Account Manager Victoria Victorian wheat markets continue to be a story of two seasons this week. Buyers are itching to walk old crop cash markets lower but remain keen to pick up new crop cover should the season turn sour.   Trade flow maintained its weight of influence on the 2017/18 season […]

  • SA Market Update – 15/06/2018

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Account Manager SA A nice cold front and low-pressure system headed across SA over the past week bringing with it some good falls to the south-eastern parts of the state. While it would have been nice to see more in the rain gauge we will take what we can get. There have […]

  • CNSW Market Update – 15/06/2018

    Alistiar Murphy, Agfarm Account Manager CNSW Conditions remain tough here in Central Western NSW with the weekends rainfall not producing the amount of precipitation as expected. Areas around Dubbo received anywhere from 3-8mm, with tallies falling away in areas further west and north. With such depleted moisture profiles these small rain events are not really […]

  • WA Market Update – 08/06/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA The eastern and northern wheatbelt has received good falls over the past fortnight which has ensured a good germination for crops, particularly those that sown dry. Although these regions have cumulatively received less rain than this time last year, the timing has been more suitable and hence, growers are […]

  • SNSW Market Update – 08/06/2018

    Nathan Michael, Agfarm Account SNSW There is a growing confidence the forecasted rain front will amount to something decent. By decent we mean in the vicinity of 10-20mm. Driving around the area west of Wagga Wagga earlier in the week, there seems to be around 1/3 of the crop not yet out of the ground, […]

  • VIC Market Update – 08/06/2018

    Sam Davidson, Agfarm Account Manager Victoria This week we saw a more pacified wheat market throughout Victoria. Although bids for 2017/18 stocks managed to gain, the pace of increase has certainly ebbed lower. We could attribute this to supply deficits in northern markets (Queensland and Northern New South Wales) appearing to have been adequately supplied […]

  • SA Market Update – 08/06/2018

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Account Manager SA This week has been spent driving over some very dusty paddocks. Dams are dry, and dust is being kicked up by the smallest gust of wind. But, as I sit here writing, I can hear the rain starting to fall and with all areas in need of a good […]

  • CNSW Market Update – 08/06/2018

    Anthony Hall, Agfarm Regional Manager NSW & QLD Another week has passed with no rainfall. The question on everyone’s mind is; will the change scheduled over the long weekend be substantial enough to make any difference. With only a few mm excepted, we suspect it won’t. It’s getting extremely late in the season to be […]

  • WA Market Update – 01/06/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA Crop conditions have improved on the back of a strong cold front that moved through the south of WA last week.

  • SNSW Market Update – 01/06/2018

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account SNSW The past week has been a bit of a tease through much of the Central West and Southern NSW. We have received anywhere from 0-15mm of rain throughout the region with the southern and eastern areas receiving slightly more than the western parts. This has only just settled the dust […]

  • VIC Market Update – 01/06/2018

    Giles Ditchfield, Agfarm Account Manager Victoria It’s been another very interesting week in the grain industry. Markets gained value early in the week, however with the rain that fell across a large part of Victoria, we saw some of these markets come off. ASW1 delivered Bendigo fell from $320/MT to $317/MT, while new crop Melbourne […]

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Account Manager SA A week of cooler nights, sporadic rainfall and mostly sunny days has seen the great state fair well from a growing perspective.

  • CNSW Market Update – 01/06/2018

    Alistair Murphy, Agfarm Account Manager CNSW We have received some isolated storm activity around Central NSW this week with most falls recorded in the 5-10mm mark. Unfortunately, it didn’t make it too far north with areas around Coonamble and Walgett missing out once again. Local rainfall was by no means a get out of jail […]

  • WA Market Update – 25/05/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA It’s been another dry week across WA but it seems our fortunes may be changing; short term weather forecasts are looking favourable for growers.

  • SNSW Market Update – 25/05/2018

    Nathan Michael, Agfarm Account SNSW Driving around the Southern NSW region toward the end of last week gave us a bit of insight into the current condition of crops both in the ground and germinated. Many areas south and east of Wagga Wagga have got some good germination and crops are around 5-10cm high. At […]

  • VIC Market Update – 25/05/2018

    Giles Ditchfield, Agfarm Account Manager Victoria Markets continued to gain value throughout the week on the back of weather and production issues around large parts of the East Coast.

  • SA Market Update – 25/05/2018

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Account Manager SA The cool, overcast days in South Australia have continued this week and while areas need rain, the dry days mean crop can get in the ground fast without rain holding up proceedings. The eight day forecast is showing a promising front coming through towards the end of the period. […]

  • CNSW Market Update – 25/05/2018

    Alistair Murphy, Agfarm Account Manager CNSW Another week has passed with no significant rainfall to report, and the medium-term forecast is still looking very unconvincing. Unfortunately, things are looking pretty crook here in the Central West of NSW, with the current drought situation now becoming much more widespread. Unsurprisingly, markets have continued to push forward […]

  • WA Market Update – 18/05/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA Seeding continues across the state, but some areas have slowed or even stopped due to the lack of rainfall.

  • SNSW Market Update – 18/05/2018

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account SNSW Some areas in Southern NSW received up to 20mm of rain late last week, with the average closer to 10mm. While not pretending this rainfall has dramatically changed the prospects for next year’s crop, it will certainly help. Growers are around 70-80% through their sowing programs, with some having finished […]

  • VIC Market Update – 18/05/2018

    Sam Davidson, Agfarm Account Manager Victoria Victorian wheat markets managed to hold onto last week’s gains and even managed to move a tick higher in places.

  • CNSW Market Update – 18/05/2018

    Alistair Murphy, Agfarm Account Manager CNSW Markets have really gone into drought mode this week, and as each week passes with no rain the crop outlook becomes more negative.

    Global Weather Markets Create Uncertainty Chris Coore, Agfarm Advantage Manager May 15th 2018 Weather, production and grain prices; the three topics on the tip of everyone’s tongue, and with good reason.

  • WA Market Update – 11/05/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA Sowing is ticking along in Western Australia with a few nearing completion. Another week of limited rainfall has seen a further switch to cereal plantings rather than canola and/or lupins. With so much dry seeding this season it is likely we will also see weed control being an issue […]

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account SNSW We are currently in the middle of an icy cold front which brought with it a limited amount of rain. Wagga Wagga received around 5mm of rain, and although beneficial, it is on the lower end of what was predicted earlier in the week. Farmers continue their sowing programs and […]

    Sam Davidson, Agfarm Account Manager Victoria Big news items for grain and oilseed markets this week were predominately northern hemisphere orientated.

    Alistair Murphy, Agfarm Account Manager CNSW Yet another week has passed with minimal rainfall received in key NSW cropping areas. But lack of rainfall isn’t stopping growers making headway on their 2018 seeding programs.
