THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE | East coast grain crop hangs in balance

Grain producers on the east coast of Australia are on high alert with severe flooding and more heavy rains causing significant interruption and damage to this year’s crop, and loss of critical value.

Grain Producers Australia Southern Director Andrew Weidemann said this year’s crop was on a knife’s edge and with more rain forecast the losses will only escalate.

GPA Chair, Barry Large, said growers in Western Australia and South Australia were not facing the same seasonal challenges, and were looking at record grain crops with harvest underway.

But he said their thoughts were also with their east coast farming cousins and the serious challenges they’re facing harvesting a delivering grain over coming weeks.
