Charles Brett, who has grain farms in northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, is focused on producing high-protein wheat targeted to Asian market needs... "Last year we had prolonged cold weather, which caused the chickpeas to abort six to seven positions, and when the temperature warmed it became very hot very quickly, resulting in a limited window to finish the crop," Charles says... Charles and Fiona's son Hamish, 25, recently returned to the farm to run the business, freeing Charles to increase the time he devotes to off-farm interests, an investment he hopes will deliver tangible benefits to local growers and the broader grain-growing community...

Just like growers, Ms Watkins says one of the main traits being sought by millers is yield - in their case, more flour per tonne of grain... Road transport has become the main method of moving grain from country receival sites to ports, although Ms Watkins argues that rail is still the most efficient way to move grain over longer distances...
