For the winter crops, wheat area is forecast to slightly increase in MY 2021/22 and barley area is expected to decrease a little. In the April to June planting and early growth period for wheat and barley, rainfall has overall been very good across the growing regions. The rainfall forecasts for July to September for all winter crop growing regions is very favorable with expectations for above average rainfall.
