Boortmalt is offering growers a forward price of €250/t for next season.

The price, indicative of the current buoyant market, will be paid on next year’s grain, but farmers must lock in on the price offer by next Friday 19 November. Growers can sell up to 20% of their tonnage for 2022, a figure based on “historical average yield”, which effectively is the tonnage contracted/delivered in recent years.
