CHRISTCHURCH GRAIN MARKET.

CHItISTCHTJRCH, March 13. The wheat market has been fairly quiet during the- week, and few purchases have been made direct from growers. Tuscan is easier than it was last week, but Hunters and Pearl-have maintained their values better. Up to 3s Sd has been given for Pearl at handy stations, but the best prrce now offered for Tuscan is 3s 6d, while last week at least one halfpenny more could have been obtained.

Growers are still holding firmly on to oats, and as bueers cannot make any advance in the absence of market business, this cereal is' practically at a standstill. "

There is likewise little doing in barley or oatsheaf chaff.

The potato market shows no change, and £2 10s for forward delivery is all that most buyers will offer, and at this price few sales are being made. But growers generally will not sell at, present, as crops that have been dug have not turned out to well.

Onions are again easier, and £3 15s to £4 is now being paid at country stations.
