  • CNSW Market Update – 18/04/2019

    Anthony Hall, Regional Manager NSW & QLD It was another dry week right across NSW and QLD and there’s unfortunately little on the forecast. It’s now two weeks since the last change came through brining rain. For most areas in NSW it looks like the only activity come the Anzac day sowing trigger will be […]

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager Wishing everyone a happy and safe Easter…and some rain. Markets remain steady to slightly softer with action limited.

  • WA Market Update – 18/04/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA On Friday of last week, GIWA released their first crop report for the 2019 season and the consistencies with what we have been sharing with you over the past month or so were evident.

  • SA Market Update 18/04/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia The only thing I can see on SA’s forecast in the next week is a delivery of Easter eggs on Sunday morning.

  • How Did World Grain Ending Stocks Increase?

    How Did World Grain Ending Stocks Increase?   Chris Coore, Agfarm Advantage Manager April 15th 2019 We’ve been hearing for the past 12 months that poor production has caused global demand to outweigh global production for the first time in many, many years. This was expected to reduce ending stocks and increase the need for […]

  • VIC Market Update – 12/04/2019

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC Sowing continues throughout Vic, but most I’ve spoken with won’t start in earnest until later this month. This week I spent some time around Shepperton/Tatura in what is a very diverse cropping, dairy and fruit area. It seems a good amount of pasture for dairy has been sown now. […]

    Anthony Hall, Regional Manager NSW & QLD It’s been very quiet on the rainfall front this week.

  • SNSW Market Update 12/04/2019

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager This week has been much of the same with markets trading sideways to slightly lower.

  • SA Market Update 12/04/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia So, what’s new in South Australia this week? Not much! Sowing will begin in the next week and it certainly looks like it will be a dry start. The radar is showing a little precipitation on the forecast, but this will still only be 1-5mm if we see […]

  • VIC Market Update – 05/04/2019

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC The quiet before the storm (fingers crossed) this week. I spent parts of this week around Swan Hill, Ouyen and Mildura.

  • SNSW Market Update 05/04/2019

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager Mother nature is definitely testing us a little. Last week’s rain predictions did bring some relief, but not as much as hoped. Eastern areas received over 20mm’s. Western areas weren’t as lucky as showers became quite patchy. Sowing programs have started around southern NSW with mostly oats and long season […]

  • WA Market Update – 05/04/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA There have been a few rain events this week throughout the cropping belt which has taken a bit more pressure off for some.

  • WA Market Update – 29/03/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA After seeing some patchy rainfall in parts of the WA cropping areas last week, the cyclones that formed to the north failed to deliver on the possibility of further heavy rain this week.
