FARMING AHEAD | Australian record crop came at record cost

A GRAIN Producers Australia (GPA) survey has shown growers faced significant challenges producing a near record crop in 2022-23.

The biggest challenges were from input costs and extreme weather events.

GPA says whilst some analysts forecast the Australian crop size at a substantial 71 million tonnes, valued at about $28 billion, Australian grain producers also planted the most expensive crop on record.

GPA's 2023 survey asked growers to provide feedback on the performance of last year's cropping program and identify their policy and advocacy priorities for the year ahead, to help resolve key issues and mitigate risks.
