Optimistic outlook for WA grain harvest

  • Posted on Thursday 12th, October 2017.

Agricultural company, CBH Group, has said that it expects to receive up to 12 million tonnes of grain via its Western Australian network due to favourable conditions over the past two months.

According to an interview with Australian Financial Review (AFR), CBH Operations Manager, David Capper has said that crop had improved in parts of Western Australia’s Wheatbelt as growers prepared for harvest.

“Early estimates had indicated that CBH Group would receive a well below average crop of between 9.5 and 10 million tonnes,” said Capper. “However, the conditions through August and September have significantly improved this and, while still below average, this year’s crop is likely to be in the 11 to 12 million tonne range.”

CBH reportedly received 16.6 million tonnes of grain last year, contributing an estimated $5 billion to the state economy.
