MAJOR eastern Australian bulk handler GrainCorp received 1.37 million tonnes into its network in the week to today to lift its total intake for the current harvest to 6.47Mt, it said in its latest Harvest Update.

The weekly total includes 999,100t in Victoria, which includes the state’s biggest day of receivals at 230,000t in the harvest to date.

“Harvest activity has wrapped up in Queensland, with some final receivals still trickling into northern New South Wales, particularly in the Werris Creek region,” GrainCorp said.

“Southern NSW and Victoria experienced a resurgence of activity with clear and drier weather conditions across the state.

“Despite a slowdown in activity due to weekend rain, growers are hoping to build momentum back up in the coming days.”

Queensland 900 412,500
New South Wales 367,100 3,190,400
Victoria 999,100 2,862,800
