Market report - 19 January 2014

Arable markets have been a little reluctant to get back under way following the festive season break. Prices have stayed firm, but appear to have found a level as buyers have resisted anything but their immediate requirements. The relatively limited supply of domestic organic material this season has kept values supported, but we do feel that the non-organic feed market is likely to fall sharply given a larger crop figure this year. We are concerned that if this does occur, it could lead organic feed values lower in turn.

Milling wheat however remains keenly sought after, and there are better prospects too for malting barley and milling oats, should samples achieve the grade. To conclude, with export restrictions now being imposed in Russia, and possibly also from Ukraine too, markets have some support for now, but when internal EU unsold supplies are offered to the market in any volume, can current values be sustained?
