COVID-19 and WA's grains industry

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) is committed to ensuring that the WA grains industry can navigate the COVID-19 situation with as little disruption to businesses as possible. 

COVID-19 Grains Industry Forum

DPIRD established the COVID-19 Grains Industry Forum to provide a mechanism for two-way communication between government and key industry stakeholders to facilitate industry continuity.

The grains group has approximately 55 members covering the grains industry supply chain, from grains research and development, inputs (chemical, fertiliser and seed), transport, storage and handling, processing, machinery, through to export and trade, and includes other stakeholders such as consultants, industry groups and government.

The group is supported by the Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA).
