Viterra seeks grower feedback on draft segregations for 2024/25 harvest

Viterra is encouraging growers to provide feedback on its draft segregation plan for the 2024/25 harvest to help ensure segregations match their needs.

Key changes include an overall increase in segregations for Nipper type lentils, genetically modified (GM) canola and Commodus malt barley, following the variety receiving its malt accreditation. Segregations for field peas and Spartacus, Compass and Planet malt barley have reduced based on a decline in plantings.

Viterra General Manager Operations, Gavin Cavanagh says the draft segregation plans are based on discussions with growers on what they plan to plant this year.

“We have been working with our grower customers to understand what they will grow this season and use this information to help inform our segregations, while also considering how we can maximise elevation capacity and minimise turnaround times during harvest,” Gavin says.

“We encourage growers to get in touch to provide their feedback on what we are planning to receive at their local site to help us match segregations to their needs.”

Growers can provide feedback by contacting their local grower relationship manager, operations manager or site contact, or online through a new form on the Viterra website.

Viterra’s Lameroo site becomes canvas in latest silo art project

A Viterra silo located in Lameroo, in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia, is the latest structure to go under the brush, with a 24-metre tall mural that celebrates the town’s farming history.

This is the 13th silo mural project to adorn Viterra structures across South Australia, connecting rural communities through art and tourism.

The mural depicts a hyper-realistic portrait of a farmer surveying his land at sunrise, a reference to the town’s agricultural beginnings and a symbol of the unwavering spirit of the Mallee. It was designed by internationally renowned muralist Sam “Smug” Bates, whose extensive resume includes a painting on another Viterra silo in Wirrabara in the Southern Flinders Ranges.

The project, which was designed in consultation with the local community, has been the vision and mission of community volunteer group, Lameroo Forward Inc, for the past three years and was completed during April.
