Viterra has received just over 3.9 million tonnes for the 2019/20 harvest so far with around 115,000 tonnes delivered in the past two weeks.
Viterra has released its first monthly receivals report for the year and had 36 sites receive grain between 25 December and 5 January. Although receivals have slowed across the state, Viterra is continuing to provide delivery options for growers.
Most of the 115,000 tonnes of grain received in the past two weeks were delivered into Viterra’s Eastern region sites.
The majority of Viterra’s sites across the state were receiving grain from on farm storage, other than growers in the south east that had a later start and were finishing up their harvest.
Some larger sites in the Central and Western region, and several sites in the Eastern region remain open for deliveries. Growers can also make deliveries by appointment at selected smaller sites.
Viterra’s busy outturn schedule has continued with five trains loaded with wheat, barley and canola from Gladstone, Snowtown and Bowmans in the last two weeks. Port Giles, Thevenard and Port Lincoln have also loaded vessels.
Viterra’s annual post harvest grower survey opened last week to obtain feedback on our 2019/20 harvest operations. Viterra relies on grower feedback to continuously improve and provide a valuable and efficient service for future harvests.
Growers that enter the survey with their relevant details by Monday 27 January can go in the draw to win one of three $1000 donations to a community group of their choice.
For more information and to complete the survey, growers can visit the post harvest survey page on the Viterra website.
Viterra’s monthly receival report is also available on the Viterra website.
