TAS Country : November 10th 2011
Friday, November 11, 2011 Tasmanian Country 27 Boom times for wheat crop THIS year's Australian winter wheat crop is expected to be the country's third largest on record, despite variable crop conditions along the east coast and in South Australia. An industry report released by Ra- bobank, estimates the total wheat crop to reach 25.6 million tonnes. While spring has proven to be Australia's season of discontent when it comes to global markets, with prices falling sharply for most soft commodi- ties including wheat, barley and canola, the weather had brought good news for producers, with excellent growing conditions for wheat across much of the country. Wheat exports are expected to exceed 18.3 million tonnes for the 2010/11 season.
