It’s not often headers are out in south western Victoria in November, but just yesterday a grower started harvesting Canola next door. As with many growers, it’s decision time in terms of marketing. In terms of Canola, the $20 fall in price in the last fortnight has made the initial plan to simply sell Canola at harvest now a little less palatable.
Wheat prices have also eased as we moved into harvest, with wheat values falling on the back of lower international markets. These falls in price present a conundrum for the growers who need cash, but don’t like the price.
