Rain brings bumper crop

Townsville Bulletin - - Na­tional Snap­shot -

SOUTH Aus­tralia’s grain crop for 2010-11 has come in at a record 10.34 mil­lion tonnes, worth $ 3.4 bil­lion to the state’s econ­omy. Premier Mike Rann said the lat­est crop re­port found dam­age to the har­vest from un­sea­sonal rains was less than ex­pected. ‘‘ While the lo­gis­tics of han­dling such a big crop has pre­sented in­dus­try with sig­nif­i­cant chal­lenges, it is ul­ti­mately a boon for farm­ers and the state’s econ­omy,’’ Mr Rann said.
