June 2020 – #3 – Everything you need to know about marketing your grain this season

It has been a season that many arable farmers would like to forget, and with less crops in the ground than most would hope and some rocky global markets, grain marketing this harvest will be more key than ever.

Crop It Like It’s Hot – Everything you need to know about marketing your grain this season tells you all you need to know about approaching grain markets this season.

Offering both a UK and global outlook, James Webster, senior analyst at AHDB Cereals and Oilseeds tells us what being at import parity is likely to mean for UK wheat prices going forward and CRM’s Peter Collier outlines potential export markets for barley, and countries we could be looking to export to post-Brexit.

Rupert Somerscales, senior analyst at ODA gives his top tips on how to market your grain  this season and tactics growers should be taking to ensure the best price.

With growers set to be potentially holding on to grain for longer post-harvest, Ken Black of Bayer’s pest control team highlights the importance of getting your grain stores harvest ready to ensure every grain is protected.

Dr Jonathan Storkey, ecologist also from Rothamsted tells us why it is so important to understand not just chemistry, but biology when it comes to weed control, and the importance of integrated control practices, while Laura Crook gives the lowdown on an app that can be used to monitor weeds on your farm.
