Dynamic binning

Dynamic binning has delivered around $58 million in value to growers since 2018/19 - providing more flexibility to potentially access a higher grade for loads that are just outside of receival standards.

Access immediate upgrades for your wheat, barley and canola

Through dynamic binning, growers have the opportunity to have their wheat, barley and canola upgraded for loads that are just outside of the receival standards.

Dynamic binning is available at all Viterra sites with the following segregations:

  • Wheat grades ASW1, APW1, H2 and H1
  • Barley grade BAR1 and Malt1 grades for Spartacus, Compass and Maximus
  • Non-GM canola (CANO) and GM canola (CAGM)

Viterra’s dynamic binning is instant – the grade is printed on the ticket at site and is immediately available to transact.

Through dynamic binning, we are able to provide more value to growers, and at the same time continue to meet customers’ outturn requirements.

In addition to dynamic binning, we also provide a 1% tolerance for moisture above Grain Trade Australia (GTA) receival standards on all wheat and barley deliveries, which has been in place for a number of years.


To ensure we can continue to meet customer outturn requirements we have made some updates to our dynamic binning service this year.

Updates include:

  • aligning the tonnages we use to calculate the rolling stack averages across all storage types to 250 tonnes (inner spaces have lower tonnes and will remain the same)
  • increasing the truck sizes we use to calculate the rolling average before we have the net weight to reflect the continued increase in truck size
  • tolerances that may vary from receival standards to ensure we can continue to meet customer requirements and maintain market access.

If the rolling stack average, calculated on live running samples, falls below the required tolerances set for protein, screenings test weight or retention, then our IT system will automatically pause dynamic binning until the average increases. This is to ensure grain meets our buyer customers’ grade specifications on outturn.

To receive a dynamic binning upgrade, the following four criteria need to be met:

  1. Classification results fall within the specified tolerance zones. 
  2. Load meets all other quality requirements, including variety, contaminants and MRLs.
  3. The higher grade segregation is available at that site. 
  4. The rolling stack average of the higher grade meets the required tolerances
