The State Opposition says uncertainty over Victoria's rail freight capacity is worrying farmers ahead of this season's harvest.
Some parts of northern Victoria are expecting their biggest grains yields in 10 years, but some reports say there will not be enough freight trains to handle the load.
That would mean some farmers have to transport grain on the roads.
The Opposition's agriculture spokesman, Peter Walsh, says there are conflicting reports of rail freight capacity.
He says farmers need more certainty.
"What I'm asking for is for Minister Kosky to do an audit of what train set numbers are available and then publicly release that information, so growers can start to plan what may or may not happen during this harvest," he said.
The State Government says farmers should not be concerned about rail capacity.
It says about 80 per cent of this year's harvest will be taken by freight rail.
