Sewing the seed.
Recent events including COVID-19 disruptions to supply chains, have amplified the effects of uncertainty in the global market of Australian agriculture. Australian agriculture is a highly globalised industry, with 71% of all production being exported (ABARES, 2020). Even though our Aussie farmers are taking a hit as demands drop for certain goods and trade tensions continue to increase with China, the grains industry still has the potential to provide the green shoots of economic recovery as Australia emerges from currency challenges. We want to help.
Reap the benefits.
With many of you finally receiving some decent rain to confidently sow winter crops, you want to make sure you have the best facilities to store your harvest. You know all too well the long process; from buying seed, fertiliser, machinery, paying people to care for the crop – selling is becoming a little harder into the market. Good storage is essential to protect your assets and keeping your business profitable in the long run.
Why Store & ignore.
We’ve come up with the store & ignore concept, it’s all about flexibility and gaining control. On-farm grain storage has become a pivotal component of many Australia cropping business. Farmers who manage their own storage facilities and operations effectively are being rewarded through preferred-supplier partnerships with key grain traders.
Grain buyers and traders are increasingly seeking out growers who can maintain grain quality through best-practice storage management, subsequently giving growers more control to switch the tables as price-makers rather than price-takers.
In addition, storing, holding and securing your grain over 3, 6, 12 month plus periods after harvest and waiting until the market works in your favour, allows you to gain significantly when the price increases. This advantage of control can add up the profit pretty quickly.
