  • Wheat grain export commitments in September 2012 fell in all states except South Australia where they were up by 8 thousand tonnes (2%) to 403 thousand tonnes.
  • Western Australia recorded a reduction in wheat grain commitments since August 2012, down by 443 thousand tonnes (or 17%). However, overall commitments remained high at 2.2 million tonnes which accounted for 68% of Australia's wheat grain commitments.
