Production Inputs Monitor

The Production Inputs Monitor is a monthly update on key farm inputs, including water, hay and grain, fertiliser and weather.

The Production Inputs Monitor, formerly the Drought Report, provides a summary of rainfall averages and climatic outlooks for the season. It monitors the spot prices for feed and fertilisers, futures prices for barley and wheat, with some analysis on price movements.  

Analysis is provided on water storage levels, which are recorded and reported month-on-month, plus irrigation levels and temporary water trades.
