Just got back from austrial.. They were dry just like us and the Lental yeilds were down same as here.. But there is lots of talk there about next season and they sow in late April/ may just like we do..
They are a bit behind us in farming practices but learning quick, flex headers are not common, but are talked about, once they are set up it will be a entire new game for us over here.. There paddocks or fields or Lental perfect, there climate from what I understand is better suited than we, with less temp spreads.. they had less yeilds than us this year but ussally get late Rains, this year was much less
They need some better infrastructure for holding these crops, some terminals are actually setting long term farmers up with storage that is required by them, one farmer I met had the terminal buyer at his farm for the Lental harvest storing grades and quaility as per there demand.. Something we never even heard about here
As for market price I took a picture of the grain corps prices last week and it figures old crop out at 51cents a lb, witch was inline with the text I received from Vitera in Grassey that day.. Once they get more into market I see there prices being better as there cost to India is much less
I think I might be locking some in real soon as I had seen 40 cents with aog locally.. As I see less upside now than downside, and Auzzy farmers are making sowing decisions just like us in next month or two
