Current Organic Grain Prices
The prices below come from organicbiz.ca. The website posts grain prices on a monthly basis. According to the buyers, in-demand crops include feed barley, milling oats, brown and golden flax, yellow mustard and yellow peas. Apparently the entire yellow mustard crop is destined for Europe. Organic pea and oat prices are expected to climb further next year. Forage peas seem to be in demand right now and are commanding very high prices in the marketplace. The organic price advantage over conventional is shrinking for lentils with high conventional prices. Panelists suggested that purchasing a Kwik Clean machine to clean grains to 95% before leaving the farm would be a good investment. Organic grain screenings have a value of around $170 MT. You can sell the screenings to neighbouring organic livestock producers. Drying grains to the appropriate moisture level is critical for realizing premium prices. HRSW should be dried to 13.5% moisture, beans should be dried to 16%, lentils to 13.5%, red lentils to 12%.
