Just read on reuters that country’s are starting to stop the selling of wheat and other commodities to help feed their own people! Russia and the Ukraine are mentioned along with some other big producers so where our prices goes is anyone guess

India has stopped selling some of the drugs it produces for export too, fairly obvious that this was going to happen. Keep stock for their own people.
Certainly going to be a strange old year

Feed barley £134 November 2020
The danger this last 3 years has been to buy into the argument put about by merchants, that the world will be awash with spring barley and thus feed barley will be £70/ton.
I fell for it twice, and then twice loaded barley at below subsequent Oct spot price.
This is a year without precedent, quite simply almost anything can happen.
At £140 plus it might be attractive to have a first sale chalked up?

@Hindsight Have been talking to a chap from Crawfords at Frithville. It is a wonder any veg or seed is being planted as the powers that be reckon you should be social distancing on a planter!! WTF!! We need to KBI to keep this country fed.

+1

Have taken some at £140 ex Nov
 
fortune favours the brave (sometimes). i’m already a lot better off had I sold at harvest. i’ve sold within 5% of the top for 6 years straight now apart from last year when I was 10% off (brexit really confused me !). We work with a very good trader who seems to never be too far out with his advice and I spend a lot of time researching what’s actually going on around the world to sense check his thinking

i’ts not just hope, it’s a considered view of the current situation, not always right but best thinking in the day we make a call is all you can sleep at night with

h19 sales to date are all osr £340 plus bonuses

x10 loads of E wheat at £190-195 sold in jan for april (loading next few weeks).

long way to go yet !!

nothing sold for h20 at all apart from a linseed contract

Have taken some cover for h20

Feed Barley at 140 + looks a decent shout

Some wheat at mid 170s..

If that's the cheapest we sell I shall be delighted...

I enjoy the thoughts and strategies of folk on this thread...

Project Lamport 2020

  • 397
  • 0

Project Lamport, now in its seventh year, is the UK’s leading R&D trials event. The original concept aimed to develop a cultural approach to blackgrass control, but has since evolved over the years. The site now explores improving soil health, as well as a comprehensive research project that investigates the impact of cultivations, compaction and cover crops on soil structure, organic matter and microbiology.

Expect weekly updates on Project Lamport, allowing you to participate in the entire journey rather than just the final product. These updates conclude with the official Project Lamport site demonstration and a live Q&A with our experts on the 15th of July.
