Australia has been hit by a record-breaking drought, with farmers struggling to meet their quotas and farmers and businesses struggling to find cash.
A new report from the Australian Institute of Agricultural Economics and Business (AIAB) finds Australia is now in the worst drought since the global financial crisis, and there are signs that the effects of the dry spell will be felt throughout the country.
Here are some key takeaways from the report: 1.
Farmers and businesses are facing a record dry year 2.
The drought is already having a significant impact on food security and rural communities 3.
A key factor in the country’s food security is the amount of grain being sold in the market 4.
In some regions, farmers are selling more grain than they can use and in others, it’s happening across the board.
Here’s what we know about Australia’s dry weather.
The report’s author, Dr David Ainsworth, said farmers had faced the worst of the drought.
“In our view, the drought is going to have a significant negative impact on farmers and their operations,” he said.
“The drought is now the worst we’ve seen since the 2008-09 global financial crash.
“Now we’re seeing more farmers having to do the same, and it’s going to be quite significant.” “
The AIAB said the number of farmers who are relying on the cash market for cash fell by almost half last year to 3.4 million. “

Dr Ainsbury said the drought had also affected the supply chain for cattle fodder.
“There’s a huge shortfall of cattle fodder in the Australian market, and that’s impacting on the availability of cattle feed, cattle fodder and the amount they can produce,” he explained.
So if we can’t get cattle fodder into the market, then that’s going of the market for a large chunk of the cattle population, and also a huge chunk of our farmers.” “
Cattle fodder is a critical feed for cattle, and a huge part of what cattle eat.

What you’re eating and drinking in Australia has also been affected by the drought, according to the AIAA.
Dr Andrew Wilson from the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Environmental Studies said there were significant issues with water and waste management.
“People are going to look to tap into the water and they’re going to try to use the water to wash their hands or wash their cars,” he told ABC Radio Perth.
“That water is going out of the system and going into the ocean.”
Mr Wilson said there was no relief for many Australians in the short term, with many affected by their reliance on the supply of water.
“It’s not a lot of water coming in, so there’s a lot more water that needs to be diverted out of it,” he added.

For some of those people, it was not really a water crisis, but they weren’t getting enough water.”

Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said there would be no “surprise” when the drought ended.
“I think the fact that it is the third year in a row, with record rainfall, it is just a great time to be farming,” he was quoted as saying by The Australian.
“Agriculture has been struggling for some time and we will continue to fight the drought with all of our strength.”
Farmers will have to sell off more than 100m tonnes of grain, or roughly 6 per cent of their land, to meet quotas 3.
The Aussie Wheat Board has confirmed it will be reducing its production, and has warned of “potentially significant” impacts on its operations.
The Wheat Board, which was set up to manage Australian wheat exports to overseas markets, said it had not yet received the report but had a “robust” response to the drought conditions.
“To protect our producers, we will have a robust response to these impacts and we expect farmers and grain processors to continue to have robust response capabilities to these challenges,” it said in a statement.
“A number of wheat producers have already reduced the number they are able to harvest in the current drought to accommodate for the change in crop requirements.”
The Royal Australian Navy says it is working to keep ships in the watertight watertight containers for up to five days, in an effort to avoid the “dead zone” that was first experienced in June.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said that would be the longest period of
