HARVEST deliveries into GrainCorp’s network as of today are at 1.5 million tonnes (Mt), following deliveries of 653,000t in the past week.
In its harvest update issued today, the eastern-states bulk-handling major said some rainfall across harvest areas resulted in a slowing of receivals late last week, but harvest activity built up again over the weekend.
Southern Queensland receivals are progressing well with strong yields, quality and protein across wheat and barley grades and also for canola coming into Goondiwindi West.
Early chickpea crop expected to come off in the next couple of weeks.
In northern New South Wales, Moree, Burren Junction and Dubbo West areas had been receiving around the clock until rain last week slowed harvest.
First receivals of barley are expected in the Port Kembla zone this week, with broader southern NSW receivals expected in the coming fortnight.
GrainCorp is continuing its large rail-to-port outload program across its network to service its export commitments, and create capacity for harvest receivals.
|Week to Nov 1||Harvest to Nov 1|
