Malt Accreditation - La Trobe and Flinders

9th Mar 2015

  • Two new barley varieties have been accredited as malt varieties.

  • La Trobe is a high yielding variety for low to medium rainfall areas.

  • Flinders is designed for medium to high rainfall areas in WA.

  • Malt accreditation now allows the supply chain to begin the process of market acceptance.

CHS Accelerate Product

19th Feb 2015

  • CHS/Agfarm have re-opened their loan advance product (similar to CBH Prepay).

  • A line of credit is established by purchasing inputs from a Ruralco/Farm Works outlet. The loan is repaid by delivering grain to CHS.

  • You can purchase seed, fertiliser or chemical and then repay the amount by selling to CHS wheat, barley or canola.

  • There is no minimum tonnes required (unlike CBH Pre-Pay) and no need to declare which commodity you will deliver.

  • Current interest rate is 5.75%.

CBH Freight Rebate

19th Feb 2015

  • CBH have provided a freight rebate to eligible growers for tonnes delivered during the 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.

  • This is a result of a surplus in the CBH Freight Fund that has accumulated since CBH transitioned into using its own rail fleet.

  • Not all sites are eligible and so not all growers receive a rebate.
