International grain traders are watching markets to see what impact there will be from the world's third-largest exporter, Ukraine, announcing an eight-million-tonne drop in production after freezing temperatures destroyed large swathes of its winter crops... Then more than a third of the country's planted crop was hit by the big freeze in February that also hit much of Europe... Mr Eudall also noted that in anticipation of crops taking a weather hit, Ukraine had positioned itself to supply feedgrain markets, opening the door to Russia becoming a major supplier of quality grain to the Middle East and Asia...

Biomass production by wheat crops can often be high, but yields are well below potential... In combination with the high rainfall, this leads to a low WUE for grain production... Wheat and canola are the two major crops in the HRZ of WA. Wheat crops in the area have considerable potential driven by the higher rainfall and longer growing season relative to traditional cropping areas...

Biomass production by wheat crops can often be high, but yields are well below potential... Wheat and canola are the two major crops in the HRZ of WA. Wheat crops in the area have considerable potential driven by the higher rainfall and longer growing season relative to traditional cropping areas... We aim to quantify the impact of temporal variation in N supply on canopy development, crop water use, development of grain yield, and WUE of wheat crops in the HRZ. Cropping in the HRZ has been dominated by cereals...
