  • Southern NSW Market Update – 15/12/2017

    Nathan Michael, Agfarm Account Manager SNSW This week has seen Southern NSW harvest completion move to 80-90%. Aside from one or two exceptions, it seems any wheat harvested after the last rainfall event has suffered from falling numbers issues. As a result, most of the late-harvested wheat is either AH9, the higher protein version of […]

  • VIC Market Update – 08/12/2017

    Giles Ditchfield, Agfarm Account Manager VIC It seems most of the state can breathe a sigh of relief after escaping the weekend rainfall event and only receiving 20-40mm.
