Description:
Overview This brief is based on a presentation by ABARES' Executive Director to the National Drought Summit in October 2018, describing the effects of the current drought on Australian agriculture. The brief summarises the extent of rainfall deficiencies and the effects on crop production, livestock markets and farm incomes. Key findings are: * Current drought conditions are severe in some regions, but cover a smaller area than the 2002-03 drought * Crop production in eastern Australia is expected to be significantly below-average, and national crop is expected to be to below average. * Livestock slaughter rates remain below or similar to previous drought events, and livestock prices remain relatively high. * Farm incomes in 2018-19 are expected to be higher than in previous droughts, reflecting higher livestock prices, improved farm productivity and growth in farm size. * Impacts of drought will differ across industries and regions, and some farms will have negative income. Key Issues 2018 drought, crop and livestock production, farm incomes.
