(1) Basis of Production Estimates. The 2017 estimates of production are based on provisional crop areas from the 2017 June Census, along with crop yield estimates from discussions with industry experts and trade organisations. The 2016 estimates of production are based on final yield results from the 2016 Cereal Production Survey and final crop areas from the 2016 June Census. 2016 figures include a small amount of triticale.

Some caution is advised when comparing these preliminary trends in yield and production estimates between 2016 and 2017 which have been derived from different sources. Final estimates of production from the 2017 harvest will be obtained from the 2017 Cereal Production Survey and published in December 2017.
