As harvest 2019 has officially begun, we wanted to provide you an update on some of the key initiatives across the AWB and GrainFlow networks around the country;
Cash Pricing At Site
We have strong interest from buyers this year and expect good depth. We have good relationships and terms for our customers including for warehousing and outturn.
Expect flour millers, processors, crushers and maltsters to be aggressive buyers of grain in system to ensure supply for the next 12 months. We provide these buyers with guarantee of supply and quality.

AWB are proud to be industry leaders in paying growers quicker, with payment terms of 2 BUSINESS DAYS on any delivery made on an AWB contract or AWB cash price at GrainFlow sites.
Clear Grain Exchange (CGX)
GrainFlow and Clear Grain Exchange (CGX) are now providing a secure settlement option for cash prices published at GrainFlow sites. This means growers can accept a cash price with secure settlement over the weighbridge or transfer to a cash price from warehouse by simply looking for ‘CLEAR Settle’ next to a buyers cash price. Growers will retain title of their grain until funds have been received in full via CGX’s secure settlement. Click here to learn more about this initiative.
Dynamic Binning applies to Wheat, Barley & Canola. Dynamic Binning instantly and automatically upgrades marginal loads if the average of the previous 250mt in the stack allows it to do so. Last year 10% of all receivals were upgraded through dynamic binning. We are improving how we communicate this to growers and now growers will receive a text message when their load is upgraded (please provide your mobile phone number/s to your local AWB Territory Manager if you want would like to receive these notifications).
Grower Delivery Application
The new Grower Delivery Application is an easy to use online form that gives you an alternative to filling out the paper Grower Delivery Form. The application puts you in control and will allow you to receive and check sampling results in real time. It will also help us plan better at site with greater visibility to what products and trucks are on their way, in-turn providing you a better experience on site. It is part of our ongoing investment in your local GrainFlow site and your supply chain. The Grower Delivery App is not mandatory and growers who prefer to use the paper forms can do so. However we do encourage growers and drivers to try the app as we believe it will give you a better experience today and in the long-term. To help growers get started and get familiar with the app, we have made some simple videos to step you through the process.
If you have any questions regarding about the above topics, please don't hesitate to call our Growers Services Centre on 1800 447 246, and remember we are here to help this harvest period.
