It was another big week for deliveries into the Viterra network with growers delivering over 928,000 tonnes, taking total deliveries for the season past 3.4 million tonnes.

Our new season shipping programme, with 6.3 million tonnes of shipping booked for grain delivered into the Viterra network, is now well underway with two vessels setting sail from our ports during the week.

Viterra General Manager Supply Chain, Derek Robjohns says we are focused on moving deliveries through our network safely and as efficiently as possible, to international markets.

“We finished loading shipments at Outer Harbor and Thevenard, the first vessels for the season for both ports. The Outer Harbor vessel is our second new season barley shipment on its way to China, following the recent removal of the tariff on Australian barley exports,” Derek says.

The Central region took the majority of deliveries for the week. Viterra Central region Operations Manager, Jack Tansley says all sites in the region are now open for harvest, with Jamestown receiving their first load for the season on Monday.

“Jamestown has kicked off in the north, and other sites in the east are getting busier as the crops east of Balaklava and down to Saddleworth are ready for harvesting,” Jack says.

“Some areas north of Wallaroo and around Port Pirie are starting to wind down, while harvest is still in full swing through the lower Yorke Peninsula (YP) and Roseworthy areas.

“Lentil growers on the YP are getting to the end of the crop, and growers in the centre down to Adelaide are well over halfway through their harvest.

“Roseworthy has been busiest canola site in the region, taking both non GM and GM canola, while beans and peas are being received into Gladstone and Balaklava.”

Viterra Eastern region Operations Manager, Andrew Cannon says good weather has seen increased activity at sites in the region.

“Our Strathalbyn site received their first delivery during the week, a load of barley,” Andrew says.

“All our sites were open with extended hours across the week and weekend to meet grower demand.”

Viterra Western region Operations Manager, Nick Pratt says growers across the Eyre Peninsula (EP) are at different intervals in their harvests.

“The lower EP is going strong. Port Lincoln and Cummins are seeing large receival days and our Kapinnie site received its first load for the season this week,” Nick says.

“We’re seeing large tonnages of canola with strong deliveries into Cummins, Edillilie and Port Lincoln.

“On the other hand, we’re starting to see sites further afield slow down and some have closed for the season."
