  • WA Market Update – 05/10/2018

    Reid Seaby, Agfarm Regional Manager WA We have experienced some isolated showers throughout WA this week which will definitely be beneficial for most crops which are at grain fill stage.

  • CNSW Market Update – 21/09/2018

    Alistair Murphy, Agfarm Account Manager CNSW This week has seen another rise in coarse grain values, anywhere between $3-5/MT.

    To Sell or Not to Sell? Chris Coore, Agfarm Advantage Manager September 17th 2018 We’ve heard it over and over again for the past few months, ‘a low production year equals higher prices and for those with grain this harvest, it will be a sell’. This, I am sure will hold up in the general […]

  • SA Market Update 14/09/2018

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Account Manager South Australia It’s the middle of September and the winter cropping season is racing along.
