As harvest wraps up across the state, Viterra is continuing to provide delivery options for grain remaining on farm.
Currently, some larger sites in the Central and Western region, as well as sites in the Eastern region remain open for deliveries. Other sites throughout the network are available by appointment and arrangements can be made by contacting the regional office. Growers are encouraged to deliver grain before the post harvest delivery procedure commences on 1 March.
From 1 March, all grain delivered will be received under the post harvest delivery procedure. This procedure is implemented to ensure grain is fit for purpose and the needs of customers and export markets continue to be met.
The procedure involves completing a post harvest delivery declaration form and may require a sample for chemical residue testing before the grain is delivered. This is in addition to the delivery advice and declaration form and the grower receival classification process. All wheat (except feed grades) and malt barley deliveries will be subject to falling number and RVA (rapid viscosity) testing to ensure the quality has not deteriorated while in storage.
Growers are asked to plan their deliveries in advance as chemical residue testing can take up to two weeks.
Growers can contact their regional office to make arrangements.
For further information on sites, commodities and grades that can be delivered from 1 March under the post harvest delivery procedure, please visit the Viterra website or call Viterra’s local regional office.
There is less than a week to provide feedback through Viterra’s annual post harvest grower survey. Growers who complete the survey by 11.59pm Monday 27 January can go in the draw to win one of three $1000 donations to a community group of their choice. The survey is available on the Viterra website.
