GrainCorp takes in 717,000 tonnes as harvest progresses south

Grain Central, November 6, 2017

EASTERN states bulk handler, GrainCorp Ltd, says in its first weekly update for the 2017 harvest that a total of 717,000 tonnes of grain have been received at its sites as of today.

That figure is made up of 508,000t in Queensland, where the winter-crop harvest is nearing completion, 199,000t in NSW, and 10,000t in Victoria.

GrainCorp said the northern NSW harvest was well under way following heavy rain events in recent weeks which have made progress a challenge, but may offer summer-cropping opportunities in NSW and Queensland.

Harvest in southern NSW has started, but has been delayed due to recent rains, and initial deliveries in north-west Victoria have been received at GrainCorp sites.

GrainCorp said grower meetings had been well attended throughout the network, and an updated version of its online trading platform, CropConnect, was now available.

It said the latest version included enhanced features such as price discovery, offer and sell grain, view deliveries and receive push notifications.

GrainCorp has advised that receival tonnages include some deliveries received prior to 30 September.
