Western Australia is now expected to enjoy a far larger harvest this year, helped by recent rains, the Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (Giwa) said on Friday.
But fortunes vary by crop.
Barley, for instance, will miss out on the increase - a reflection of the punitive tariffs that China placed on imports of the grain from Australia.
The levies were imposed before the end of the sowings window, giving farmers a little time to swap area to alternative crops.
