THE WEEKLY TIMES | Labour shortage bites as harvest ramps up

Grain Producers Australia southern region director Andrew Weidemann said a shortage of labour was slowing down harvest for some growers.

Weather across Victoria was starting to warm up this week after a cool start to the harvest season.

“That will put more pressure on the supply chain to try and get (harvest) done quicker. And of course, labour is a huge factor in that. At the moment, I’d say it’s the limiting factor as to how quickly we can really get the crop off,” he said.
