Pre-Harvest Program

Market Check’s innovative Pre-Harvest Program is an avenue for growers to execute part of the pre-harvest strategies we advocate and utilises put options to protect new crop prices without the risks associated with a forward sale (swaps or forward contracts). The Pre-Harvest Program is like an insurance policy against falling prices, growers pay a ‘premium’ (put options cost) to protect downside risk for new crop wheat and barley prices but also participate if the market rises with no ‘washout cost’ associated if the crop fails.

"Put options have been an effective way of protecting prices whilst avoiding washout risks. This means we can actively manage a larger percent of our new crop production price risk further out using the Pre Harvest Program."
