Platts APW Wheat FOB Australia price assessment represents the daily tradable value of Australian Premium White wheat, with a minimum of 10.5% protein (on an 11% moisture basis), a maximum of 12.5% total moisture, a minimum falling number of 300 seconds and a typical flour wet gluten of 24.5%.
Other grades of milling wheat are normalized to APW, making Platts APW wheat assessment a suitable proxy for the whole sector.
Platts APW Wheat FOB Australia predominantly reflects export spot transactions from western and southern Australia, but exports from other Australian locations may be monitored for pricing consistency. The assessment also encompasses trade data from across Asia and the Middle East, with transactions agreed on a CFR basis normalized back to FOB using prevailing spot freight rates.
