Prices in Germany


One of the most important growing areas for triticale is the North West, a region with intensive animal production - especially pigs and poultry. Here, triticale had taken its German start, because livestock farmers very soon found out that feeding triticale is very economical - see Experiences .

In the North West triticale is such a popular grain that not only the biggest portion of the productions is fed on farm, but also important quantities are bought from other regions. Triticale is traded at prices slightly under those of wheat, but clearly higher than those of rye. In the average of the years 2009 - 2012 triticale was offered and traded at prices about 10 % higher than those of bread rye. Development of prices can be seen from tables and graphs

Farmers producing grain for the market will have to decide between wheat, rye and triticale. In regions where there is a big demand for bread rye, it might be advantageous to specifically grow bread rye, whereas in regions with high demand for feed and ethanol grain, triticale is much more profitable. A good example is the region of North Rhine Westphalia, where official quotations for all species of grain including triticale are published regularly. Have a look at the following graphs

In the average of the past 3 years, producers in North Rhine Westphalia were paid a premium for triticale amounting to more than 10 % of the Price of bred rye!

Conclusions

Based on market developments of the past 3 years, commercial farms producing for the market will have to make their planning to plant triticale or other cereals subject to the following facts:

1. Farmers producing grain to be fed on farm should prefer triticale
> to rye on all locations
> to wheat
>> on all but specific wheat locations
>> even on wheat locations if produced after wheat

2. Farmers producing grain for the market should prefer trticale
> to rye - with the exception of regions with high demand for bred rye
> to wheat
>> on all but specific wheat locations unless in regions with high demand for bred wheat
>> even on wheat locations if produces after wheat.
