Good rainfall in September followed by a mild spring has helped boost winter crop production to a forecast record high.

Total production is expected to increase by nearly a third to a record high of 52.4 million tonnes.

Above-average rainfall in September, followed by mild spring conditions, had ensured good soil moisture for the critical grain development period, acting ABARES executive director Peter Gooday said on Tuesday.
