Grains and other crops
Broadacre farmers in Victoria grow a range of crops on over 3.5 million hectares of land.
Wheat is Victoria's largest crop, followed by barley,canola, pulses, oats, chickpeas, triticale chickpeas and lupins. Many farmers also cut grain crops – primarily oats and vetch – for hay.
Grain production has expanded into southern Victoria in recent years as meat and wool producers seek to diversify their enterprises.
Victorian grain exports were valued at $2.2 billion in 2012-13, increasing by 18% from the previous financial year. This increase saw grain become Victorian most valuable export commodity for the first time.
