In addition to the monthly wheat estimates, quarterly estimates for barley and selected other grains and pulses are available in a separate datacube from the 'Downloads' tab of this publication.
At the end of December 2009, Australia's bulk storage of wheat grain was estimated at 17.8 million tonnes, 23% greater than the amount stored at the same time last year. Of the total wheat grain stored by bulk grain handlers, 86% (or 15.3 million tonnes) was milling grade, and 14% (or 2.4 million tonnes) was feed grade.
