DELIVERIES to South Australia’s major bulk handler have passed 5.4 million tonnes (Mt) following receival of 447,804t in the week to Sunday, according to Viterra’s last weekly harvest report for the year.
The Central region has received the most grain so far this harvest, followed by the Western and Eastern regions.
Viterra operations manager Michael Hill said deliveries were slowing last week as some growers finished up for the season.
“Receivals peaked on Monday and Tuesday and dropped slightly but stayed steady for the rest of the week as different areas within our regions experienced wet and cool weather at various times,” Mr Hill said.
“We are continuing to extend our hours to suit the forecast to help as many growers finish their harvest as soon as possible.”
Viterra owns and operates six of SA’s seven bulk grain export terminals, and last week its Outer Harbor and Inner Harbour terminals in Adelaide, plus Port Giles, Port Lincoln and Wallaroo all loaded export vessels with wheat and barley.
Viterra’s next harvest report will be released on 5 January.
