This year's Ag Answers Australian Crop Annual Review 2017 has been released and forecasts production to be about 30 per cent lower than last season’s record levels, dipping 10 per cent below the five year average.
The Review finds that in this substantial year-on-year swing, poor early season weather conditions across most of the country’s cropping regions - combined with a drier than normal winter - has limited yields significantly, and below average production is now expected in Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia.
