Australian summer crop areas down 9%

The area planted with summer crops in Australia is forecast to fall by 9.4% to 1.2 million ha in 2013/14. Hot and dry weather in northern New South Wales and Queensland have depleted soil moisture levels and created unfavourable conditions for planting summer crops, according to the Australian Bureau of Agricultural Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES). In September, the Bureau forecast a 3.3% increase in the summer crop area, provided that there was sufficient rainfall in the run-up to planting (Agrow No 672, p 26).
