ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

This publication provides monthly estimates of stocks and use for wheat, and quarterly estimates for barley as well as selected other grains and pulses for selected manufacturing and agricultural businesses, licensed exporters and bulk grain handlers. These estimates are compiled from various surveys conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), including the Grain Handlers Stocks Survey, Wheat Use Survey, Wheat Export Sales Survey, and from administrative data relating to wheat grain exports. Estimates from the surveys are combined with export trade data to provide monthly estimates of the volume of wheat grain stored, used, or committed for use.

The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ABARE) uses these data to compile a monthly report on the Australian wheat industry.

The current scope and coverage of the collections is understood to account for the majority of Australia's grain stored, used and committed.

Stocks and use data for wheat users collected prior to the December 2009 reference period are not directly comparable with data collected from December 2009 onwards. Data is expected to be comparable over future collection cycles.

From April 2010, the total for stocks of wheat grain stored by users has also been split to show sub-totals for Growers and Users. Sub-totals for months prior to April 2010 are not available. For further information, refer to the Explanatory Notes

For more information on stocks of grain held by bulk grain handlers, including barley and selected other grains, see Stocks of Grain Held by Bulk Handling Companies and Grain Traders, Australia (cat. no 7122.0.55.001).
