Improving the profitability & sustainability of Esperance port zone grain growers

The cool damp conditions that can be experienced during the harvest period on the south coast often leads to delayed harvest and reduced yield, quality and profit. As one of the key ways to improving grain quality in the Esperance Port Zone, SEPWA and the CBH Group have joined in a partnering a project to promote earlier harvest via high moisture grain handling.

The project is run by Nigel Metz and aims to increase grain quality grown on the south coast by employing existing methods of early harvest and high moisture handling. The long-term outcome will be shorter harvest completion time with benefits for growers, bulk handlers, marketers and end users.
