DELIVERIES to eastern Australia’s two biggest bulk handlers in the current harvest were close to 18.4 million tonnes (Mt) in total as of yesterday, according to the latest weekly harvest reports from GrainCorp and Viterra.

In its report released yesterday, GrainCorp said rain and storm events resulted in slower movements throughout New South Wales in the past week, particularly at southern sites, but it expects harvest activity to continue for another few weeks.

GrainCorp said growers were still delivering in the Wimmera and north-east regions of Victoria, where its Geelong port terminal last week reached 500,000t of new-crop exported.

Some GrainCorp sites are now open by appointment only.

Week to Jan 10 2022 Harvest to Jan 10 2022
Queensland 8,230 1,742,330
New South Wales 230,920 7,473,820
Victoria 57,910 3,509,650
TOTAL TONNES 297,060 12,725,800

Growers delivered 76,735t into the Viterra network in the past week to take total receivals for its South Australian sites and two in western Victoria to more than 5.6Mt.

Viterra operations manager Michael Hill said the majority of deliveries were wheat followed by faba beans and barley.

“With the 2021-22 harvest drawing to a close, Viterra will continue to provide delivery options for growers delivering grain remaining on farm,” Mr Hill said in Viterra’s final weekly report for the 2021-22 harvest.

Viterra will now release monthly reports for 2020-21 receivals, with the first due on February 8.
