This publication provides estimates of wheat grain stocks and use 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.

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

Estimates from these surveys are combined with final export trade data to provide monthly estimates of the volume of wheat grain stored, used, or committed for use.

The current scope and coverage of the collections is understood to account for the majority of Australia's wheat grain stored, used and committed. The scope and coverage of these collections may be expanded in the future, however, to account for a wider range of agricultural businesses.

The ABS welcomes any comments from readers regarding the usefulness, range and quality of the statistics presented in this publication.
