GRAINGROWERS COUNTER PARTY RISK GUIDE

Almost $45 million has been lost to the Australian grain production sector over the last two years, due to a range of trader insolvencies. Grain producers, through their trade contracts as well as their wider marketing strategy, can reduce counter party risk by implementing strategies. 

GrainGrowers has released a Grower Guide:
“Reducing Counter Party Risk in Grain Contracts.”

The guide is a practical tool to assist GrainGrowers’ members to manage counter party risks in their dealings with traders or buyers and has been developed in consultation with legal experts on the PPSR (Personal Property Securities Register).

STATE OF THE INDUSTRY REPORT

GrainGrowers compiled the State of the Industry report in 2011 to provide a detailed analysis of the state of the Australian grains industry three years after deregulation. 

The report outlines the prospects for the grains industry at the time and the priority actions required to advance the interests of producers in an internationally competitive environment.

The report covered issues pertaining to storage, handling and transport, wheat receival standards and variety classification, productivity, competition, risk management and marketing are all addressed in the report.
