Australia’s 2019-20 wheat harvest will be the smallest in over a decade, businesses are seeking to import certain classes of bulk grain from overseas. This grain is then processed into stockfeed and milling products.
Bulk grain imports have historically been sought for a variety of commercial reasons. This includes supplementing short supplies of domestic grain during drought periods

Australia is unlikely to produce the large volumes of the high protein wheat required, however this will depend on rainfall received between now and the end of autumn (May 2020) are expected to continue falling as the country battles multi-year drought and water issues.

Australia has strict requirements and a long-established policy to ensure that importing bulk grain, that’s where Argentinas primary sector – internationally renowned for its high productivity levels and use of advanced technologies – comes to help with the supply needs.
