Wheat grain stored by bulk grain handlers increased in November 2009 as the 2009 harvest continued. At the end of November 2009, Australia's bulk storage of wheat grain was estimated at 10.0 million tonnes, more than two and a half times the amount stored at the end of last month. Total milling wheat grain stored by bulk grain handlers was 8.6 million tonnes, and total feed grain stored by bulk grain handlers was 1.4 million tonnes.
