Crop and pasture reports
Primary Industries and Regions South Australia (PIRSA) publishes a report on the condition of Crops and Pastures in South Australia every second month. During the cropping season estimates of the area and production for each crop and district are also provided with the report. The report is assembled by regionally based consultants. Visit Rural Solutions SA.
The estimates are quality checked from a number of sources. Occasionally adjustments are made. The table in the current report has the updated estimates which may vary slightly from tables in previous year's reports on this site.
- The state has received good rains for the growing season to date.
- Production is estimated to be the third largest crop on record at 8.9 million tonnes.
- Crop is in good to excellent condition with well above average potential.
- There were low levels of pests and some disease in pulses, some water logging in higher rainfall areas.
- There was lighter rain in the west late winter into early spring: crops on Eyre Peninsula slightly moisture stressed.
- Despite the limitations with a continued good spring, the production estimate could have some upside.
