That is the outlook of the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences in its latest commodity forecasts. ABARES has forecast an 11 per cent rise in farm production in 2010-11, with farm exports set to improve by almost 6 per cent to $30.2 billion. Farm cash incomes are forecast to jump by more than 50 per cent to about $86,000 on average for broadacre farms, the best result since 2004-05. Wheat exports were now forecast to be $4.7 billion, or $480 million less than in September, and about $1 billion has been sliced off farm-gate wheat values despite a record 26.8 million tonne crop.
