Agfarm Market Updates

  • WA Market Update – 01/02/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA It’s been a quite week in WA with school returning and everyone moving back into regular post-holiday routines. The boomspray hasn’t seen much action this year which has obviously resulted in less money spent on summer sprays but in turn means there is very little subsoil moisture at this point […]

  • SA Market Update 01/02/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia Once again, it’s a similar tune playing on both the weather and pricing front with little change from last week. The BOM is still predicating a warmer and possibly drier first quarter of the year. You may recall the maize day I attended on the flats at Murray […]

  • VIC Market Update – 25/01/2019

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC Everything is moving slowly this week with people, markets and plants being dominated by the continued heat. The summer crops; corn (see left picture below near Echuca), cotton and rice are thriving in the conditions. The continued hot weather has allowed later sown crops to recover well. However, water […]

  • CNSW Market Update – 25/01/2019

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager SNSW The last week hasn’t brought much relief on the rainfall front with minimal amounts falling in areas along the border. However, there has been up to 20-30mm’s in the north east and central eastern areas of NSW. The lack of rain on the radar for the coming week will […]

  • SNSW Market Update 25/01/2019

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager SNSW Not much to report weather wise through Southern NSW, as it has been much of the same, possibly 1-2oC cooler than last week. Summer crops are enjoying the long blue-sky days but are sucking the water up and cash with water prices only heading one way. The temporary water […]

  • WA Market Update – 25/01/2019

    Reid Seaby, Regional Manager WA Very little has changed since last week. There has been no rainfall to speak of which has meant very little (if any) summer spraying and the strong prices over harvest have left growers heavily sold with very few tonnes left to commit. With farmers returning from a well-earned break, attention […]

  • SA Market Update 25/01/2019

    Kate Phillips, Agfarm Regional Manager South Australia As the Billy Idol songs goes it’s “Hot in the City” …. Adelaide set a new record today (Thursday), one I would have been happy for us to miss. The hottest on record is 46.1oC back in 1939. As I write this, it is already 46.5oC and we […]

  • VIC Market Update – 18/01/2019

    James Ryssenbeek, Agfarm Regional Manager VIC Beaches, bankers and sheep replace headers in Vic as harvest is all but completed. There are also a lot of trucks moving as consumptive markets call on grain contracts. Markets have been quiet this week. Grain pool operators are preparing to close their main pools but expect to see […]

  • CNSW Market Update – 18/01/2019

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager SNSW Rainfall continued to allude most cropping areas in central and northern NSW and QLD. Some small falls were recorded in eastern and south east areas of NSW and some larger falls up and down the QLD coastline. The heat being experienced through much of the country sure didn’t stay […]

  • SNSW Market Update 18/01/2019

    Matthew Noonan, Agfarm Account Manager SNSW Well, the furnace got turned up this week. With temperatures well above 40oC and some reaching 45-47oC it’s reasonable to assume most would have been on early morning and evening duties. There is some small relief on the radar for the weekend with temperatures ranging from the mid to […]
