How Primetics’ Gold Grain Trading Software Can Help Your Business Navigate the Volatile Grain Market

Published by: Primetics on: 20/06/19

Despite its longevity as a trade, commercial grain is one of the most challenging global markets in existence. Thanks to the volatility of grain prices, low margins and the unpredictability of supply, grain trade remains one of the most difficult industries to navigate. Working in such a turbulent industry naturally requires support, which is what Primetics are here to provide.

Why is grain management so complex?

Successful grain trading is complex as it relies on a number of unpredictable factors. One of these is the weather, which naturally plays a key role in the production of grain. As such, any fluctuations to average weather predictions have the potential to cause havoc in the grain industry if businesses aren’t adequately prepared.

But the weather isn’t the only factor. The volatility of the commercial grain industry was exemplified back in 2017 when some of the world’s biggest grain traders faced massive hits to their profits after South American farmers experienced slower sales than average.

Soren Schroder, the chief executive of Bunge, reflected on the crisis, stating that to support healthy grain trading, the industry is required to be ‘more responsive and manage capacity actively’. Schroder insisted that to succeed in the grain trading industry, companies must ‘work more closely with farmers and offer them new financing and risk management tools as well as logistics, so they can lock in a larger share of crop before harvest’.

Primetics software is designed to help you do exactly that. Our software supports all aspects of grain management, from grain tracking to grain inventory. At Primetics, we understand that grain management is more than simply producing grain; from seed origination to production and yield sizes to traceability, there is much for grain traders to consider.
