With CGX, growers can:

  • offer their grain for sale at the price they want, to all buyers
  • enjoy payment security, as they retain title of their grain until payment is made
  • receive proceeds within seven business days of selling their grain
  • delay receipt of sale proceeds to a time that suits their business

CGX is easy to use, plus it’s free to register and offer grain at any time.

Grain grower and CGX user Jeff Burgess of Gulnare, South Australia explains, “the best thing about CGX is you set your own price. I sell wheat and barley through CGX and usually achieve above the market value as advertised in the current market”.

Listing online is easy and the CGX team is available over phone to help at any time.

Jeff notes that CGX customer service is what ensures the process is quick and easy.

“The team are fantastic. I just ring up and they do the listings for me. We review any outstanding offers about once a week.” 

This harvest there are even more options for growers to manage their listings, including the Lapsed Offers feature on the My Grain page, which lets you quickly and easily re-list expired offers.

Grain trading on CGX is consistently above the best prices advertised by merchants. This is because when you offer grain for sale on CGX all buyers can see it and try to buy it.

Often there are many more buyers than you may realise that want to try and buy your grain, we just need to make it easier for them to do so.
