Market report

Trade is mainly confined to clearing any farm held stocks before harvest gets underway, but nearby buyers are hard to find for immediate delivery. Turning to harvest, crop condition looks good after some recent rain following the mini heatwave seen earlier in the month, and forward sales are now being made from farms. With the majority of organic grain being spring sown harvest is still some time away, but we have heard of some barley being harvested in Gloucestershire on July 10th. Organic premiums have improved recently as the conventional market has fallen back, so potential sellers should check prices with their buyers before harvest gets underway in any volume and possibly takes values lower.

Import markets are also quiet as sellers assess crops, and the well reported Ukrainian import restriction is still causing knock on supply issues with some raw materials..
