Growers choose to contract specific paddocks of wheat, barley and canola to Flexi Grain. The grower will then manage the contracted paddocks through to harvest, as they normally would. Prior to harvest Flexi Grain provides the contracted grower with a shared NGR card, where the grower will then deliver the grain produced from the contracted paddocks.
Once all of the production from the contracted areas has been delivered, Flexi Grain will then transfer the grain to the predetermined grain marketing strategy managed by Flexi Grain in conjunction with Lachstock Consulting. There are no tonnage commitments in the contract, as growers are committing to delivering all of the grain grown from the contracted paddocks. It's that simple, the contracted grower delivers all the grain grown, from the contracted area.
