Growing Regions

 
Barley

Generally planted from May to July, harvested from October to December*.

  • Barley is used for malting and brewing as it has a husk that protects the developing shoot during germination and the embryo during handling which is used as a filtration aid during brewing.
  • Germinating barley has a firmer internal consistency than wheat and has less damage during malting and handling.
  • Used for malting, brewing, bread baking and soup ingredients.
  • Feed Barley grades also available for stock feed and nutrition.

 

 
Sorghum

Generally planted from August to October, harvested from February to June*.

  • We are specialists in sourcing only the best quality sorghum for the Chinese market and fully understand your requirements.
  • Used for the production of spirits, beer and gluten-free flour, in Australia it is mainly used as stock feed in the cattle, pig and poultry industries.

 

Our Commitment to Quality and Food Safety

  • We act in accordance with the industry regulations and trade rules set by Grain Trade Australia (GTA) to ensure transparent agreements are in place.
  • Our farmers work with qualified agronomists to ensure they identify the most suitable crop type for their farm and provide in-crop management and soil improvement advice.
  • After harvesting we ensure there is product traceability and segregated storage, and that quality testing and packing protocols are in place to ensure the product meets the highest quality and performance standards.
  • We ensure that all biosecurity regulations by the Australian Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF/AQIS) and China’s import requirements are met.
  • Grain supply is available in both containers or in bulk shipments.
