EASTERN Australian bulk handler GrainCorp has received 6.4 million tonnes (Mt) from the 2022-23 harvest to date, with deliveries in the week to today bringing in 1.8Mt.
This weekly total exceeds that of the previous, when 1.6Mt was delivered to its network across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
In Queensland, harvest is now mostly complete, with some receivals still trickling in around the Goondiwindi area.
The Central Queensland and Western Downs clusters have recorded their biggest ever winter-crop harvest, and more than 10 sites have already broken receival records.
The NSW harvest continues to pick up pace, with growers now focusing on wheat around the Dubbo and Werris Creek areas in the north, and the Griffith, Temora and Wyalong areas in the south.
Rainfall over the latter half of the weekend and today may slow receival activity for a few days.
In Victoria, harvest is well under way, and delivery momentum is building at all sites.
Canola deliveries have slowed in some Victorian areas as growers move to harvesting and delivering cereal crops.
Large outload program continues across the GrainCorp network to create capacity for more receivals, with more than 230,000t of grain being outloaded per week.
We continue to see the full spectrum of grades delivered to our network, including milling wheat and malting barley.
