Late season delivery
Please contact your Regional Office to discuss late season delivery options.
Grain delivered from 1 March 2018 will be received under a Late Season Delivery Procedure. There are two options for delivery of grain, depending on the site’s segregation capacity.
- If the site is unable to segregate late season deliveries a pre-delivery composite sample is required for chemical residue testing. The Late Season Delivery Declaration is required to be completed and presented with the pre-delivery sample.
- If the site is able to segregate late season deliveries a pre-delivery sample is not required. The partition sample will be tested for chemical residue post-delivery. If residue is detected at levels greater than the Australian MRL, individual grower load samples will be tested and grower(s) may be liable for contaminated stock. The Late Season Delivery Declaration is required to be completed and presented with the first load.
Your Regional Office will advise what option is relevant.
Each load presented requires a completed Delivery Advice and Declaration Form and is subject to the grower receival classification process.
Viterra implements a Late Season Delivery Procedure to protect grain already received into the Viterra storage network during harvest and to maintain market access for South Australian grain. Individual grower loads samples may be tested and grower(s) may be liable for contaminated stock.
At all times chemicals should be applied according to label instructions, application rates and safe operating procedures. All withholding periods are to be adhered to. Government regulators may investigate incidents where grain is found to have chemical levels above Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs).
Due to the weather events during the 2017/18 harvest, mandatory testing of loads that meet malting barley (including HIND and COMP grades) are subject to Falling Number or RVA testing regardless of the visual detection of sprouted grain.
