We have collected 5 important Malt Crop Reports.
First of all, we will see a significant rise in malt prices. Starting right at the beginning of 2023. Every harvest brings its challenges, and this year has been no exception. The production of malting barley is an energy intensive process and so changes in the cost of oil and gas, which affect the pricing of fuel, fertiliser, domestic gas and electricity, can have a large impact on the overall price of malt.
It has also been a year of extremes in the markets. Increased input (fertiliser, energy, diesel) costs, a very dry and hot summer, bringing with it the risk of crop fires and damage to grains in stores, added concerns to farmers this year.
The adverse weather caused a global supply issue in cereals. France, Germany and Denmark experienced adverse harvest conditions, there was an unprecedented heatwave in North America and corn, wheat and barley crops were severely affected by the extreme heat. The Canadian barley harvest produced half the usual output. These weather events put a serious dent in worldwide supply. This combined with increased demand, due to the world starting to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, sent cereal markets north.
