CBH will put in motion a five-year strategy to safeguard the future of grain quality in WA by creating a 100pc quality-assured (QA) supply chain.
It aims to make all of WA’s 195 grain receival sites QA by the 2012-13 harvest, CBH exclusively told Farm Weekly last Friday.
The changes start next year when 21 selected sites will become subject to QA standards.
Grass Patch is currently the only QA site in the CBH delivery network.
Under the strategy, non-QA growers able to choose between joining the Better Farm IQ program or having their grain tested for chemical residues and varietal purity on delivery.
Growers who choose to have their grains tested for chemical residues on delivery will be charged $2.50/t.
