South Australia's production of grain is sustainable, entirely rain fed with no irrigation, and minimal inputs of fertilisers and chemicals. Around 4 million hectares of crop are grown each year with the southern regions producing wheat, barley, canola, oats, lentils, peas, beans, lupins, chick peas, fodder, lucerne seed and other small seeds. In 2018-19 the South Australian grains industry generated over $2.7 billion in gross industry revenue.
