WA Wheat Production To Increase 29% Year-on-year in 2021

Views: 105    


Foreign media, February 15 news: The Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) released a report this week, predicting that Western Australia’s wheat production in 2021 will reach 12.9 million tons, an increase of 29% year-on-year. Ideal growing conditions have boosted wheat yields and farmers have increased the sown area.

GIWA expects total grain production in Western Australia to reach 24 million tonnes in 2021, an increase of 31% year-on-year. Among them, the output of barley reached 6.4 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 29%, and the output of rapeseed reached 3.1 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 48%.

High production costs in 2022

GIWA reports that the cost of growing cereals in 2022 has risen sharply as supply chain issues have led to high prices for fertilizers and pesticides, which will lead to lower plantings and lower yield potential. But in areas with higher rainfall, farmers will switch barley fields to wheat because of better prospects for wheat yields.


Oat acreage may remain unchanged. The 2021 oat acreage is much lower, but the production is higher than the 2020 level. Oat acreage is likely to remain stable in 2022.
