Tridge summary

In February, Australia's barley exports totaled 498.4 thousand tons, comprising 379.9 thousand tons of feed barley and 118.5 thousand tons of brewing barley, a decrease from January. The majority of feed barley was exported to China (72%), with Japan and Thailand also receiving shipments. China was the main destination for malting barley as well. This reduction in exports was expected due to the New Year celebrations in China and does not reflect a decrease in demand. Preliminary estimates indicate that barley shipments from Australia rebounded to over 700,000 tonnes in March.
