Sorghum Crop Outlook December 2017 (Australia)

13 December 2017

Simulated crop shire scale yield based on current soil moisture conditions up to the end of November 2017 and projected rainfall indicate an average yielding sorghum crop for the 2017/18 summer growing season. There remains, however, variation to the outlook among local regions. More specifically, most areas in CQ are showing slightly above average crop yield expectations, while most areas in southern QLD and NNSW are having sorghum yield outcomes close to or below the long-term expectation. It should be noted, this is still early in the growing season and the range of likely sorghum yield outcomes remains wide. Widespread average to above average rainfall is needed, during the next couple of months to induce good summer plantings and improve the current crop outlook across all areas of the north-eastern Australian (NEAUS) summer cropping region.
