Local markets were quiet again with a lack of bids across the east coast boards. We saw South Australian wheat bids firm a fraction over the day on the cash boards, with APW1 going through at $390/t Adelaide for small volume while Port Lincoln port zone continues to trade at a $10-11/t premium.

The Western Districts’ wheat harvest has kicked off with reports of another impressive season of high yielding red wheat crops; growers through the region will get a solid run at harvest over the next 3-4 days.

We have started to see some precipitation build into the 8-day BOM forecast with southern NSW and Victoria forecast to receive 10-20mm; this will hold things up towards the middle to back end of next week through the western parts of Victoria.

Have a safe and happy New Year may the 2022 season bring plenty of joy again to growers and grain markets.
