The weekly export price survey helps identify how competitive domestic surplus grain is in export markets. In years of surplus, the need to export grain increases and this price survey can be used to display how competitive we are and the likelihood of trade occurring. The prices are collected from a sample of merchants and are quoted as "Free on Board" meaning they show the cost of grain and loading. Each week on a Tuesday, the Tuesday spot prices are published for the current month, plus a selection of forward months. In instances where there are less than 7 days remaining in the current month, the following month is collected.
