Price increase for grains in New Zealand

18-07-2007 | |

Prices for raw materials are also rising in New Zealand. It is expected that the commodity grains willrise by 25% to 30% next season, after a run of poor seasons.

Hew Dalrymple of Federated Farmers
Grains Council
,
says prices for barley, grain maize and wheat have risen worldwide, which means
prices in this country will also increase.

He expects dairy demand for
grain by farmers will grow significantly, as many will use supplementary feeds
to extend their milking season following a higher dairy payout forecast by
Fonterra. He says price negotiations for next season will begin in the next
couple of weeks.
