CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA — Australia’s wheat production is expected to decrease in the 2021-22 season after La Niña rains slow, Reuters reported.

The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) said anticipated dry weather following La Niña is expected to reduce acreage and yields.

Due to the forecasted dry weather ABARES forecasts a 25% drop in wheat production for the 2021-22 season totaling 25 million tonnes, following a record 2020-21 season on pace to hit a record total of 33.34 million tonnes, Reuters reported.
