This is GrainCorp’s final Harvest Update for the 23/24 season. We’d like to thank growers for their ongoing support and wish them all the best for the 2024 summer crop and 24/25 winter crop seasons.


  • With Queensland and NSW harvest now complete, growers are looking ahead to summer cropping opportunities. Decent rainfall has boosted soil moisture in many areas, which should support crop prospects.
  • Growers are still delivering in some parts of Victoria, mainly in the Wimmera and Western Districts. Wet weather continues to be disruptive for growers, however with clearer conditions, the activity is expected to wind up in the next fortnight.
  • Several sites across Victoria have had their best ever season, with records falling at Elmore, Murchison East, Mitiamo, Quambatook, Rainbow, Speed and Nhill. Meanwhile, the Southern Mallee cluster of sites have together received the most grain ever this season.
  • Most sites are open by appointment only now – growers are encouraged to maintain regular communication with their local Site Managers regarding opening hours, deliveries and segregations.
  • To provide growers with greater flexibility in their storage and marketing options, GrainCorp has made a significant update to its free storage period for this year’s winter crop receivals, extending it until 30 June 2024. The updated Grower Warehouse Agreement can be found, here
