DELIVERIES continued strongly throughout New South Wales and Victoria over the festive season, with more than 2 million tonnes (Mt) of grain received since the last Harvest Update issued on December 19.
Primary areas of receival activity have been the Junee, Temora, Wyalong and Cunningar regions in southern NSW and the Wimmera, southern Mallee, Central and North East regions in Victoria.
Drier and warmer conditions also helped growers in northern NSW harvest their remaining crops.
The receival activity in this area is beginning to wrap up, with growers looking ahead to summer-cropping opportunities.
A large outload program continued across the GrainCorp network during the festive period to create capacity for more receivals.
This will be sustained throughout January, with up to 200,000t to be outloaded per week.
Some sites, particularly those in northern NSW, are open by appointment only now and growers are encouraged to communicate with their local site managers regarding opening hours, deliveries and segregations.
