    Anthony Hall, Regional Manager NSW & QLD 1.5 minute read No rain to report on this week so unfortunately sowing hasn’t really progressed with a fair percentage of central and northern NSW and southern QLD yet to make a start. Some areas to note that have got a crop in are Goondiwindi, north east of […]

  • WA Market Update – 24/05/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA 2 minute read There was a little bit of rain around last week but for those with little to no sub-soil moisture it was of minimal benefit. For the lucky ones with moisture underneath or where crops have germinated, this rain would have been helpful. The better falls were in […]

  • SA Market Update 24/05/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia 1.5 minute read South Australia has continued to see mild weather conditions through most of this week.

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC 1.5 minute read And everything is green again! Sowing progress is at 70% by my reckoning, and grain markets have had a slight rally.

  • WA Market Update – 17/05/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA 1.5 minute read There has been little change over the past fortnight and to state the obvious, it’s dry. Nevertheless, growers continue to get the crop in the ground, albeit a little slower than they otherwise would if they were seeding into moisture. For most of the grain growing areas […]

  • CNSW Market Update – 17/05/2019

    Anthony Hall, Regional Manager NSW & QLD 1.5 minute read The past week hasn’t brought any further planting rains for much of northern NSW or QLD cropping areas.

  • SA Market Update 17/05/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia 2 minute read How good is the ground starting to look around SA at the moment! I’m always amazed at how a little rain and some warm ground temperature has barren land turning a tinge of green almost overnight. Not to brag too much, but we even have […]

  • VIC Market Update – 10/05/2019

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC 1.5 minute read Just add some water and sowing has definitely kicked along. With around 15mm+ in the last week and few interruptions, growers are well into their programs ranging from 50-80% sown. Some canola planting has been cut back, but in my talks, most have stuck with their […]

  • WA Market Update – 10/05/2019

    Tom Guthrie, General Manager Account Management 1.5 minute read Unfortunately, from a rainfall perspective, most of the state remains dry and there is nothing positive on the extended forecast out until the end of May.

  • VIC Market Update – 03/05/2019

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC 1 minute read Rain rain…well almost everywhere. Pretty good rains for most of Victoria this week. There were a few holes west of Horsham and some of the southern western dairy country didn’t receive much, but a 15-35mm range would cover the majority. What does it mean? Well depending […]

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia 2 minute read There was a strange occurrence in SA this week… it rained! Now while there hasn’t been a lot, it has fallen and has, if nothing else, settled the dust and given the weeds on my lawn a drink. The BOM was giving us hope of […]

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC More farmers have started sowing this week predominately stockfeed; vetch, oats and pasture.

    Anthony Hall, Regional Manager NSW & QLD It was another dry week right across NSW and QLD and there’s unfortunately little on the forecast.

  • 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. […]

  • SA Market Update 12/04/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia So, what’s new in South Australia this week? Not much!

    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 […]
