Grain Standards in Western Australia

GIWA is responsible for setting coarse grain standards (barley and oats) in Western Australia, supporting Grain Trade Australia which sets wheat grain standards nationally and Australian Oilseeds Federation which sets national oilseeds standards, and Pulse Australia which sets national pulse standards.  GIWA is an associated member of Grain Trade Australia, Australian Oilseeds Federation and Pulse Australia.  GIWA collaborates with Western Australian bulk handlers to review grain standards on an as-needs basis to ensure that WA grain standards are fit-for-purpose to customer requirements and set to maximise returns to the WA grain value chain.
