Grain growers will have the opportunity to have their wheat upgraded with the introduction of dynamic binning for the 2018/19 harvest by Viterra.
Viterra commercial and quality manager Andrew Hannon said dynamic binning would be available for the wheat grades of ASW1, APW1, H2 and H1.
“Dynamic binning provides growers with more flexibility to potentially access a higher grade for loads that are just outside of the receival standards,” he said.
“We’re excited to be launching this service for growers which will be provided to them instantly at classification and their grain immediately available to transact.”
Under the program, growers can be upgraded when the classification results for the load are within the tolerance zone for protein, screenings or test weight.
“The higher grade will be given if all other quality requirements are met, including variety, contaminants and MRLs, and the average quality of the individual stack at the site continues to meet the receival standards,” Mr Hannon said.
“If the rolling stack average falls below the GTA receival standards for protein, screenings or test weight, then dynamic binning will not be available for the grade into that stack until the average again meets grade receival standards.”
Mr Hannon said Viterra would carefully monitor the quality of the grain going into storage while continuing to ensure that grain outturned meets the requirements of end-use customers.
“We have made significant investments in our grain IT systems and can now monitor the quality of stacks in real time,” he said.
“This has allowed us to introduce dynamic binning with confidence we will continue to meet customers’ outturn requirements.”
