Market report

Courtesy of Simon Tubbs, Saxon Agriculture

After some recent upward price movement, markets are now slipping back from season highs. Domestic cereals are still available, albeit in limited quantities, but consumer buyers now appear to have good cover until August. Southern European grain will also become available at the end of June, and we therefore feel that old crop prices will probably now start to drift to new crop levels as the two seasons merge.

There have been some opportunities for those wishing to sell new crop, as premiums over the conventional market have been better than those seen over the last few years. If you feel your crops look well it may make sense to sell before the harvest sales rush which tends to swamp the market pre Christmas.
