• A transport differential ex Bloemhof landed at a milling facility north or south of a median being Otjiwarongo, and;
• an 8 % GMO-fee premium

In Namibia, white maize is grown exclusively as a staple food and is planted under both irrigation and rain fed conditions.

Wheat producer floor price

The floor price for wheat is determined by the following principles as agreed upon by way of a signed marketing agreement between millers and producers:

The formulae are:

Formula A:

A 5-year average, of the actual SAFEX spot price, inflation adjusted, plus:
• 30 % import parity ex Upington landed in Windhoek and,
• 70 % of the average wheat price for Hard Red Winter (HRW) ex USA, via Walvis Bay, landed in Windhoek
Or
Formula B:

The average of the actual SAFEX spot price for the whole of October, plus:

• 30 % import parity ex Upington landed in Windhoek and,
• 70 % of the average wheat price for Hard Red Winter (HRW) ex USA, via Walvis Bay, landed in Windhoek

The higher of the two prices of formulae A or B will serve as the floor price for wheat marketed that season.
