It is some consolation that the fuel price is falling.

Farmers are selling grain into a market where buyers are unwilling to participate.

I dare say some speculators have caught a cold this week.
Gonna be some serious money made and lost if this slide carries on much longer.Personally I think £250-280 is a good place for it to settle,it ain’t sustainable for livestock production at over £300.
Needs to be sub £200 for livestock production unless the prime price for beef/lambs/ pork and chicken and the egg price rises 20/30% very quickly and that is very unlikely!

And yes i agree the arable farmer needs £250+ a ton with the current price of inputs!

Sell offs invariably go "too far". As do optimistic bull runs. Its 8 weeks until harvest. Or in my mind around 40 big days of grain fill. Its dry. Its looking unlikely it will rain "properly" for another fortnight in the east. Add to this that I am a committed long holder of new crop grain, then I wont be selling any more now.

Im pretty sure yields wont be as good as last year over here.

So is the sentiment that grain has levelled off to a realistic price not to come back or that the fundamentals are that we are still a lot shorter of grain in the real world than everyone wishes?

I definitely think UK will have above average
The thing is I, as most, would be selling wheat over the last 6 months whether it was £200 or £300, paying £350 didnt create any more wheat, and Mr Miller should have known he would still be getting it without the panic buying, seems it has now dawned on him.
£240 for feed wheat will be the average for 2022 harvest is my prediction, bear in mind some is already bought at £170 as well as £300
