HARVEST is now mostly complete in Queensland and northern New South Wales, according to GrainCorp’s latest weekly Harvest Update issued today.
The eastern Australian bulk handlers said growers in the Goondiwindi, Moree and Narrabri regions were beginning to turn their attention to summer-cropping opportunities.
The NSW harvest is still well under way in the Dubbo and Werris Creek areas in the north, where growers are concentrating on wheat deliveries, and in the Temora, Parkes, Junee and Boree Creek areas in the south, where growers are harvesting and delivering canola and cereal crops.

GrainCorp said the Victorian harvest is building strong momentum, especially in the state’s north-east, and the Mallee, Swan Hill and Wimmera regions.
Across most areas, Victorian growers are harvesting canola and barley, with more cereals expected over the coming week.
The overall quality across all commodities has been excellent, with canola and barley deliveries performing particularly well in southern NSW and Victoria.
A large outload program continues across the GrainCorp network, with over 150,000t of grain
outloaded last week.
