Mitigate Wash-Out Risk by Contracting Paddocks Not Tonnes

GROWERS, CONTRACTING EARLY IS KEY

Contract paddocks (not tonnes) today to secure your access to premium export shipping slots and lower warehousing costs. All Hectare contracts executed in April and May have priority access to premium shipping slots for the 2023/24 harvest.

1) That early committed Hectare contracts are rewarded with access to premium export shipping slots. These slots provide the optimum opportunity to maximise grain value from export and/or blending margins in either bulk and/or container markets.

2) Grain Market volatility is expected to continue this year. Flexi Grain’s Hectare Contracts provide growers with a low-risk pre-harvest grain marketing strategy.

3) By contracting paddocks and not tonnes growers are mitigating wash-out risk.

Growers have the ability to receive any elevation margins associated with selling directly into the export market helping to maximise the true value of the grain.

On the East Coast of Australia, this is really the only way growers can access the Export market and the margins it presents.”

What Are Export Margins?


With the large Australian crops year on year, and the inability to export this surplus grain, this has created an environment of high export margins.

Flexi Grain have introduced a new export model, allowing growers to export directly, passing the export price’s full value (after costs), back to the grower.


Previously, Flexi Grain Returned to its SA Growers an Elevation Margin in EXCESS of $40/mt.

Elevation margins remain strong for both Wheat & Barley through 2023.
