Growers delivered 1.3 million tonnes of grain into Viterra sites in another week of strong receivals.

Viterra Operations Manager Michael Hill says sites have managed very well.

"All sites across our network have been busy, with some taking more than 10,000 or 20,000 tonnes a day for several days straight," Michael says.

"Our employees have done a great job receiving growers' loads as quickly as possible."

Viterra Operations Manager for the Central region Jack Tansley says growers delivered more than 600,000 tonnes into the region with lower sites such as Saddleworth, Eudunda and Roseworthy busy along with Gladstone and Port Giles. 

"Canola deliveries have hit full pace and growers are moving to faba beans as they reach the end of the lentil harvest," Jack says.

"We are consistently outturning grain and transporting it down to our port terminals for export, with our Wallaroo site commencing its second new season vessel."

Viterra Operations Manager for the Eastern region Jo Klitscher says Monarto South has again had their biggest day on record.

"It's a fantastic achievement, and I congratulate local growers for breaking the record and our employees for their efforts in managing such a busy time in a safe way," Jo says.

Viterra Operations Manager for the Western region Nick Pratt says the Western region is in full swing with 480,000 tonnes delivered.

"Most of the 1.4 million tonnes into the Western region has been harvested and delivered in a very short space of time," Nick says.

"It's a testament to growers and their practices who have been able to get their crops off quickly.

"Growers have delivered large volumes into Tumby Bay, Cummins and Port Lincoln. Port Lincoln and Thevenard are also busy preparing for more vessel loading."
