USDA sees Australia 2017-18 wheat exports down 18% year of year.

Exports of wheat from Australia in 2017-18 (Oct-Sep) are likely to fall by 18.2% on year to 18 million tonne due to transportation problems. Strong exports of pulses and canola due to higher demand for these commodities may lead to a hassle in transportation facilities and is likely to hit wheat exports. The port and logistical problems due to a shortfall in shipping containers may hamper wheat exports. Australia caters to a significant part of India wheat imports. India is also expected to import lesser wheat this year due to a bumper crop at home.
