THE WEEKLY TIMES | Grain price pain causes grower headaches

Victorian grain growers are opting to store more grain on farm as cereal and canola prices fall.

Grain Producers Australia southern region director Andrew Weidemann said the price drop was expected as harvest started, but it was creating headaches for growers who had invested heavily in inputs and needed high returns to pay off their costs.

“(Growers are) warehousing (grain). They’re not selling it,” he said.

“There’s still some growers will be selling it just purely to try and recoup some of the cash flow from this year."
