Australian summer crop area rebounds

Significant increases in plantings of sorghum, cotton and rice in Australia are expected to boost the summer crop area by nearly 60% to 1.3 million ha in 2010/11. That would follow the smallest summer crop area for more than a decade in 2009/10, when the area dropped by 30%. Above-average rainfall in northern New South Wales and southern Queensland should increase sorghum plantings by 55% to 602,000 ha, according to the September forecast by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics/Bureau of Rural Sciences (ABARE-BRS).
