Deliveries into wheat pools are experiencing a surge this season, according to AWB.
AWB pool manager Charlie Brown said 2015-16 Harvest Pool receivals were estimated to be up about 50 per cent from last season.
It is estimated that a lower percentage of grain has been sold by growers at this stage of the harvest than for the past four seasons, likely because of the price.
Mr Brown said it was interesting that a large number of growers, who had not used the pool for the past few years in favour of cash sales, were returning.
“We are seeing many growers across the wheat belt, both big and small, deciding after discussions with our team to deliver into the AWB pool for the first time in a number of years,” Mr Brown said.
“Growers looking for cash flow, but not liking today’s domestic cash values, and are looking at ways to enhance returns and capture potential market rallies which we remain confident are ahead."
The AWB harvest pool closes on January 20.
