Western Australia's bulk-handling system for wheat made its debut in the 1931- 32 season when five sidings were experimentally equipped and handled less than 3 1/2 per cent, of the State's marketable harvest. Nine years later 232 sidings were fitted with bulk-handling equipment, receiving nearly 98 per cent, of the State's wheat, and since then, the whole of the marketable harvest has been handled on a bulk basis at sidings, save for a few parcels of special milling wheat on which a premium was paid.
