Read grain data and statistics about the South West Western Australia region.
- Wheat: Down $10 ($260 to $270/tonne). Barley: Steady ($300 to $310/tonne). Triticale: Steady ($355 to $365/tonne). Oats: Steady ($330 to $340/tonne).
- In terms of price moves, it is a similar story to what has been happening across the bulk of the country with wheat following offshore markets lower, while barley has been flat.
- The ongoing movement of grain from WA to the east coast has been the main driver of liquidity in wheat markets. While in barley markets, a lack of liquidity has been the driver of sideways price movement.
- While some of the more southern grain growing areas have had some rainfall, the wheat belt and more northern grain areas have not been as lucky, at present.
- The rainfall outlook for WA’s cropping areas for the next few months remains fairly neutral.
Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.
