Tassie farmers reap a more bountiful harvest
The Mercury, June 29, 2004
While the worst drought in a century devastated crops across the country last financial year, Tasmania fared better than most states, new figures reveal.

Although last year was bleak for farmers, the country's peak farm lobby group said recent rain had turned conditions around for some.

Across Australia, wheat production fell by more than half from 2001-02 -- down 58 per cent to 10.1 million tonnes.

Barley production also fell by more than half -- down 53 per cent to 3.9 million tonnes -- despite a small increase in plantings.

While the median estimated value of agricultural operations (EVAO) of all farms was about $109,000 in 2002-03, nearly two in 10 farms (22,000) had an EVAO below $22,500.

At the other end of the scale, one in 10 farms (14,200) had an EVAO about $500,000.

National Farmers Federation CEO Anna Cronin said the recent and current drought had been the "most severe" Australian farmers had seen.
