Australia readies for strong winter crop

Rain in Australia may mean bumper harvest

Australia, a large exporter of wheat, is expecting a bountiful winter crop of wheat, barley and canola given the recent rain, according to reports. Parts of the country have received more than half an inch to nearly two inches of precipitation.

September rains are key for Australian farmers to boost the fall harvest, which may total as much as 36 million metric tons.
