Australia: Grain and Feed Annual

Australian wheat production is forecast at 20 million metric tons (MMT) for 2019/20 while barley production is forecast at 8 MMT, with some growers likely to switch to other crops, such as wheat. Prospects for barley plantings are likely to be affected by China’s ongoing anti-dumping case. Sorghum production is revised downwards to 1 MMT in 2019/20 while rice production is forecast to increase to 220,000 metric tons in 2019/20 as beneficial rains and lower water prices are expected to return.
