Delayed Price Contract

The seller delivers grain to the receiver and is issued a delayed pricing contract. The seller can price the grain in the future at his/her discretion up until the final delayed pricing date.

  • This alternative may eliminate the sellers risk of quality deterioration of stored grain.
  • It allows for the elevator to move stored grain freeing up space for future harvests.
