Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

Industry enterprises tend to be located close to export terminals or near areas where grains are primarily grown.

As wheat accounts for the majority of grains stored in the industry, storage facilities tend to be located in states with large wheat crops, such as New South Wales and Victoria. These two states are estimated to account for over 75.0% of industry enterprises, while only accounting for just over 55.0% of Australia’s total population. Barley is primarily grown in Western Australia and oats tend to be more tolerant of wetter conditions in Victoria and southern New South Wales... purchase to read more
