EASTERN Australian bulk handler GrainCorp has received 12,866,310 tonnes of grain in the 2021-22 harvest to today, according to its final Harvest Update for the 2021-22 season.

GrainCorp said deliveries were still trickling through in the Goondiwindi and Darling Downs regions of southern Queensland, and New South Wales growers were still making some deliveries in the north and south of the state ahead of rain forecast later this week.

“Victorian growers (are) still delivering mostly wheat across the Wimmera and Central Vic, with quality holding up to finish off the season.”

Some GrainCorp sites are now open by appointment only.

On January 15 last year, GrainCorp had received more than 13 million tonnes (Mt) from the 2020-21 harvest, which broke the previous record of 12.6Mt set in 2016-17.
