He said investments in machinery — on farms and at Kelly Grains — meant that the harvest could be brought in quickly.

Extra machinery will make grain and oilseed unloading and testing quicker at Kelly Grains’ Tocumwal and Finley facilities.
Kelly Grains has added a drive-over hopper and stacker exclusively for canola.
It has also added another grain analyser machine that tests moisture, protein and oil in canola to reduce turnaround times.
Mr Kelly said received canola samples were showing good oil content ranging between 42 per cent and 45 per cent and grain well below the maximum eight per cent moisture level.
Kelly Grains is again in partnership with Australian Bulk Alliance and its Tocumwal ABA is an open-access site, so more than 40 registered grain buyers can post prices there. Growers can access prices for the Tocumwal site online.
‘‘Electric prices mean they can change throughout the day to reflect the market,’’ Mr Kelly said.
