Australian Crop Update sets the scene for record national production

Australian cropping is heading for an excellent season end – with crop production expected to be significantly higher than average across the country – according to Ag Answers’ November 2016 Australian Crop Update.

The report provides producers and industry with a concise analysis of the current national and world crop production estimates, seasonal conditions, prices, demand and financial performance of Australia’s cropping farms.

In each state, the national winter crop production is forecast to be above average and possibly the highest on record, driven mainly by an exceptionally wet winter and predicted higher yields. 

At a state level, Victoria is expected to achieve the largest year-on-year production increase with improved yields in the Wimmera and Mallee regions set to double the state’s crop production output compared to last year.

Crop production in Queensland is projected to be 25 per cent higher, while production across New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia is also expected to increase by between 10 and 15 per cent, although frost caused significant yield loss in some areas of Western Australia in October.
