Australian wheat share grows in south-east Asia | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Sunraysiadaily.com, 05/03/2019 - The Australian wheat industry is looking to Myanmar as an increasingly important and valued market in the South-East Asian region.

Australia holds almost 90 per cent of the Myanmar wheat market, having doubled exports from 200,000 tonnes in 2012 to 400,000 tonnes, worth $117 million, in 2017.

To maintain Australia’s dominance of this market as it continues to grow, the Australian Export Grain Innovation Centre (AEGIC) has ...

Weather Continues to Affect Global Wheat Production

Weather Continues to Affect Global Wheat Production | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Stephanie Bryant-Erdmann, USW Market AnalystUSDA expects global wheat production to fall to the lowest level in 5 years at 733 million metric tons (MMT), down 3 percent from the record high of 758 MMT in 2017/18. If realized, it would be slightly below the 5-year average. This downturn is, unfortunately, led by decreasing supplies in historic wheat exporters. At the same time, USDA raised its forecast for global wheat consumption to a record high 746 MMT, up 1 percent from 2017/18. This article gives a round-up of crop conditions and forecast for Argentina, Canada and Australia.

Australia cuts wheat production forecast — BlackSeaGrain | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

UkrAgroConsult, June 13th, 2018

With dry weather predicted along Australia’s East coast, the country’s top commodity agency on June 12 reduced its 2018-19 wheat production forecast by 8% to 21.9 million tonnes, down from the previously projected 23.7 million tonnes.

Compared to the previous year, output for the world’s fourth largest wheat producer is forecast to rise by 3%, while planted area is projected to fall by 2%, according to the June quarterly report from the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Science (ABARES).

“Total planted area to winter crops is forecast to decrease by 4% to 21.2 million hectares as a result of forecast declines in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia,” ABARES said.

World Grain, 20/02/2019 - Wheat production in Australia fell to an 11-year low during the 2018-19 season, according to a recent report from the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ABARES). The final wheat harvest total for the year was 17.3 million tonnes, down from 21.2 million tonnes the previous year, according to ABARES. It marks Australia’s smallest wheat crop since 2007-08, when output was 13.6 million tonnes. The decline in production in 2018-19 was due to a drought that affected New South Wales and . . .

Australia's grain harvest to be below average

Australia's grain harvest to be below average | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Piper Delholm (The Flinders News), 29/11/2018

The Primary Industry and Regions SA (PIRSA) crop and pasture report for spring has been released and the results are saddening for our local farmers. 

After a year filled with drought like conditions and with some areas thriving, the health of crops and pastures across the state is a varied result. 

The 2018-19 harvest has fallen to an estimated 4.9 million tonnes, this was grown from 3.5 million hectares and is well below the long-term average of 7.9 million tonnes for South Australia. 

The Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetsone says that the below average rainfall season had an even larger impact on drought affected areas. 

“This year we’re experiencing quite a patchy situation- some areas are experiencing very good seasons, while others are experiencing very difficult seasons”, he said.

El Niño affecting Australia and World's agriculture

El Niño affecting Australia and World's agriculture | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

East-central Australia has been enduring severe drought for an extended period of time. Long range weather forecasters are now talking about a new El Niño event expected to develop later this year. El Niño events are harsh on eastern Australia agricultural areas, resulting in serious drought quite often. The return of El Niño later this year and into 2019 raises a sense of urgency in getting significant rain to fall prior to the onset of El Niño conditions so that the severity of drought will not reach extreme levels.

Winter wheat, barley and canola planting from northern New South Wales into Queensland has been on hold except in irrigated production areas since mid-April when the planting season normally begins. A few meager rain events have occurred, and a small amount of planting may be completed, but only in irrigated fields. Dryland crops need greater moisture to support planting, germination and emergence, and the prospects for such conditions are very low. 

Nearly all of the region’s agriculture can be affected by El Niño (including the Mediterranean) depending on its intensity, and all eyes will be on the phenomenon when it begins to evolve in a few months.
