  • The Russian market firmed overnight – seemingly at odds with increases in production as harvest draws near a close. With reports suggesting 83pc of the crop is harvested with 79 million tonnes (Mt) received. USDA currently at 78Mt so we expect they will adjust this number higher
  • An interesting line in the wires overnight indicating that a Philippines ag lobby group is trying to limit wheat imports to support its local corn market. This is meaningful for Australia, with a large program already booked.
  • US corn and soybean export pace to China will be feature of pre-report expectations. Corn is certainly keeping the bid under the wheat market and the trade will be looking for some support/confirmation from the USDA
  • Bulls need feeding and the USDA report is the chuck wagon – it will set the tone and it’s hard to see an unchanged result – there is some tension ahead of this one.


  • New crop markets gained ground late yesterday with bids pushing firmer by another $2-3/t on wheat and barley
  • We saw old crop markets also follow the upward trend and firm with barley in Victoria trading around $220/t track equivalent
  • AUD/USD pushes back up towards .73 range with it currently at .7280 this morning
  • LSC NSW team hit Moree yesterday afternoon, crop potential is certainly there but growers would love another rain and continual kind finish
  • The Wimmera and Western Vic looking to lead the charge with a 15-20mm event on its way
  • SA also set to receive a wide spread 5-15mm event across the cropping regions in the next 8 day according to the BOM
