In recent years a proliferation of apps and websites have made sourcing grain prices relatively fast and easy.
These tools are a reliable and efficient way to source pricing information on a site and grade basis, allowing growers to make marketing decisions quickly and easily without spending hours in the office.
When using such tools, it is important to confirm or check prices directly with the buyer. During harvest, prices can change quickly and many buyers will have a better price posted on their own website, or quoted verbally over the phone.
The value of the pricing apps is in narrowing down the search, allowing monitoring of broad trends in the market on a daily or weekly basis.
