GROWERS delivered a total of 767,320 tonnes of grain into the GrainCorp network in the week to today to take the total for the harvest to date to 2.28 million tonnes (Mt).

This was despite some patchy rain in the week to today, and more is expected this week to delay up-country harvest activity in all states, though no disruptions expected to the export supply chain.

In its latest Harvest Update issued today, GrainCorp said another big week of exports was completed across the network, and 300,000t of grain has been shifted to port in order to free up more capacity at country depots.
In southern Queensland, harvest on the Western Downs is largely complete.
Harvest has passed the halfway mark on the Darling Downs and in the Goondiwindi region, and wet weather is expected to draw out the finish.
In New South Wales, harvest has started in the state’s south, with most of the activity taking place in the Wyalong and Griffith clusters, where rain late last week slowed harvest.
GrainCorp reports high yields and good quality have been seen in canola and barley deliveries to date.
First deliveries for the Victorian harvest arrived at GrainCorp depots in the Northern Mallee, where rain is expected to delay harvest over the next few days.
