GRAIN deliveries into Viterra sites are nearing the 4 million tonne mark, as more receival records are broken across the state.
This past week, 1.3mt of grain was received by Viterra, taking the overall 2021-22 harvest total to 3.961mt.
Viterra Operations Manager Michael Hill says sites have managed very well.
"All sites across our network have been busy, with some taking more than 10,000-20,000t a day for several days straight," he said.
Viterra Central region Operations Manager Jack Tansley says growers delivered more than 600,000t 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," he said.
"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 Eastern region Operations Manager Jo Klitscher says Monarto South has again had their biggest day on record.
"It's a fantastic achievement," she said.
Viterra Western region Operations Manager Nick Pratt says his region is in full swing, with 480,000t delivered.
"Most of the 1.4mt into the Western region has been harvested and delivered in a very short space of time," he said.
"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."
