GRAINCORP received 1.3 million tonnes (Mt) of grain into its network across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria in the week to today, it said in its latest Harvest Update.

The bulk handler said it had received canola at sites from Queensland right down to Victoria over the weekend.

“The Queensland harvest progressing well with Goondiwindi and Western Downs clusters having received over 1Mt between them,” the report said.

Northern NSW sites are now well into their wheat and durum harvests, with most deliveries occuring in the Moree, Narrabri and Burren Junction regions.

In southern NSW, sites in the Griffith and Temora regions have received canola, barley, and wheat in the week to today.

“We are seeing harvest activity pick up right across the state despite some impacted access to paddocks and roads in various areas.

In Victoria, harvest activity is also now underway in all regions, thanks to improved weather conditions over the week.

“Sites are predominantly receiving canola, with some barley starting to flow into the northernmost sites and a couple of wheat samples starting to come into the Mallee sites.

“We continue to see the full spectrum of grades delivered to our network, including milling wheat and malting barley.”

GrainCorp teams are actively assessing requirements for segregations as needed.
