NORTHERN PRODUCE PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919

NORTHERN PRODUCE PROSPECTS   LAUNCESTON, Friday. - Now that the holidays are over it is antici- pated that there will be a slight im- provement in the grain and produce markets, but until the season's crops arrive no movement of importance can be expected. Potato crops are doing well, and those farmers who have "spe- culated" in the tuber are likely to rea lise higher prices than last year; but, as is usual when prices are high, crops are small, peas having been very large- ly sown along the Coast. The country still needs rain. Winds have followed rapidly upon what rain has fallen, with retarding effects. Generally speaking, there has been little material change in quotations since the holidays. Onions havo drop- ped very slightly, and the price' of hay is coming down. Nominal quotations for general produce are as follows: Best grade Algerian hay chaif, £8/10/ per ton; second grade/£5 to £7 per ton. Hay, at stack, nominally £4/10/ to £5 per ton.
