Australian crops hit by floods

Extensive flooding in Australia has damaged some 15-20% of the 350,000 ha of sorghum planted in southern Queensland, estimates the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES). Some 80% of the intended crop area had been planted in the region by late December. It is unlikely that further planting will take place before the planting window closes at the end of January, the ABARES notes. The Bureau had forecast a 35% rise in Australian sorghum plantings to 697,000 ha for the 2010/11 season in early December ( Agrow No 606, p 22).
