CBH Group has returned $95 million to growers in rebates for the year to September 2018, with its marketing and trading division generating $48m through activity in domestic and international markets.
The Western Australian winter crop has produced the goods over the 2018/19 season with the CBH Group taking in almost 16 million tonnes as harvest wraps up across the state.
Grain received by Western Australian bulk handler CBH Group has this week passed its season estimate of 14.8 million tonnes, with harvest still well under way in the Albany and Kwinana zones but winding down in Esperance and Geraldton.
Harvest in Western Australia is drawing to a close in some districts, and CBH Group’s receivals in the week to 13 December of 2.77 million tonnes have brought the total intake in the harvest to date to 13Mt.
Western Australia has harvested around two-thirds of its winter crop now that receivals have hit 10.13 million tonnes (Mt), according to the latest weekly report from the state’s bulk handler, CBH Group.
Western Australian growers have delivered 2.4 million tonnes (Mt) of grain in the week to 30 November into CBH Group storages to lift the state’s total to 7.2Mt, or close to half the expected tonnage, in the harvest to date, according to CBH Group’s latest harvest report.
Western Australian growers have delivered 2.63 million tonnes of grain to CBH Group sites in the harvest to November 15, with the intake for the rain-interrupted week adding 1.43Mt to the state’s total, according to CBH Group’s latest weekly harvest report.
Western Australian growers have delivered 1.27 million tonnes of grain in the harvest to November 8. State bulk handler CBH Group said interest from export customers is on the rise as domestic demand from eastern states takes a back seat.
Significant storage and handing investment will be completed in time for harvest in Western Australia’s central and southern zones as CBH prepares to handle everything the 2018 winter crop can deliver.
The CDF grain-delivery app trialled last year by CBH Group is being rolled out at all its Western Australian sites in time for the 2018 harvest.
