The company said it was "early days" with the Victorian harvest.
Harvesting in Queensland was virtually complete and in northern NSW, it was well progressed.
GrainCorp said more than 4.5 million tonnes had been received into its storage system.
Company spokesman Angus Trigg said much of the wheat received was ASW grade, although it depended on the region.
"There's also some pretty good canola about," he said.
"Oil contents were good."
AWB said most of the wheat it had received in NSW and Queensland fell into the ASW and Hard 2 grades.
Spokesman Peter McBride said most receivals so far in NSW were barley and canola.
Mr McBride said AWB had opened up most of its sites for canola delivery this year, reflecting the larger crop but also parent company Cargill's strong interest in the oilseed.
